Redeemed

Ephesians 1:7

In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of His grace …

Through Christ we are redeemed through the blood He shed for us. Redemption means liberation by the procurement of a ransom. There are three primary things we have been redeemed or liberated from. The first is spiritual death. Spiritual death means to be separated from God, who is life itself. Being separated from God man no longer found his identity in the Creator, but in creation itself. But now redeemed we are reunited with our Father and therefore our worth can be found in Him and nothing else.

We have also been redeemed from sickness and disease. Jesus did not just bear our sins and the punishment our sin deserved, He also bore our sickness for by His stripes we are healed (1 Peter 2:24). He also redeemed us from poverty for 2 Corinthians 8:9 declares that He became poor that we might be made rich. Rich means to have more than enough. God wants us to be a blessing helping those in need, showing His love for them, but we can’t do that if we are poor.

Scripture teaches us that the redeemed of the Lord should say so. This is one of the most important keys to walking in our redemption. You need to start declaring according to His Word who you are in Christ, what you have in Christ, and what He says you can do through Him. According to God’s Word you are His child, you are healed, and you are blessed. Life and death are in the power of the tongue, so let the redeemed of the Lord start declaring their liberty by agreeing with God’s Word. Proclaim who you are, what you have, and what you can do in Him.

Strong In The Lord

Ephesians 6:10

In conclusion, be strong in the Lord [be empowered through your union with Him]; draw your strength from Him [that strength which His boundless might provides].

In the Lord is where a believer can find all the strength they need, the strength to face and overcome any challenge in life. It didn’t say be strong in yourself, but in the Lord. In Ephesians 6 it goes on to tell us to put on the whole armor of God so we can be strong and stand against our enemy. It begins with the belt of truth. Equip yourself with the truth of God’s Word by living in the Bible and applying what you learn.

Next put on the breastplate of righteousness, living a life of integrity, listening to your heart and obeying your conscience (the voice of your spirit man). Walk in the gospel of peace. Jesus brought good news of how we can have peace with God by being restored in our relationship with Him. Walk with Him daily, focused on Him and you walk in peace. Take up the shield of faith by continually hearing the Word preached with a reverence and a hunger for God.

Next use the helmet of salvation by keeping your thoughts in line with the Word of God, casting down every thought that is contrary to God’s Word. Finally take the sword of the Spirit, which is speaking God’s Word, especially when circumstances come against you. Declare what God has said and therefore use your sword to change those circumstances. We have been given all we need to be strong in the Lord. It is up to us to live in the armor we have been given.

Walk In The Light

Ephesians 5:8

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light…

As a child of God who is now light in the Lord we are to walk in the light as He is in the light. In 1 John 2:10 we are told that if we love our brother we abide in the light and there is no cause for stumbling in us. If you have ever walked into a dark room in which there were obstacles all around and you were trying to find a light switch you probably stumbled as you moved about looking for that switch. So it is for us as believers when we do not walk in love.

Before being born again we did not have the love of God within us. We were filled with darkness, but once we receive Christ, God’s love (His light) now resides in us. We have become the light of the world. The wise men were led to Jesus by a shinning star which brought them to the Savior. When we walk in love we are that shinning star leading people to Jesus.

His love is an action not a feeling. We walk in love by choosing to treat others the way we would want to be treated. When we walk in love our faith is working for us because faith works through love and this will keeps us from stumbling. So choose to walk in the light you have been given by choosing to act upon the love of God, His light that He has placed in you, and you can lead others out of darkness to God, who is love Himself.

Accepted By God

Ephesians 1:6

to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.

The Father has accepted all who are in Christ Jesus because of what Jesus has done for us. Have you ever seen someone who wanted to be accepted by others so badly that they did whatever they could to gain acceptance, even leading them to act like someone they are not? People do many things in trying to feel accepted by others.

Many believers do not share their faith because they are afraid of being embarrassed, which is wanting acceptance. When we as believers in Christ try and find our worth in being accepted by others it will often lead us to act like someone we are not. In doing so we then begin to drift away from God no longer living as a Christ follower and we therefore break our fellowship with Him. But God has already accepted us through the blood Christ shed for us.

We no longer need to try and find our value and worth in being accepted by others, for our sole worth comes from God. So as a born again child of God don’t try to be someone you are not to gain man’s acceptance, and don’t fall for the lie that God has not received you. Because of what Jesus did for you, you are already accepted by God, and therefore a son or daughter of God.
