Praise God For His Redemption



Ephesians 1:7-10

God is to be praised for His redemption.

*******

When the Lord Jesus Christ died on the cross, He satisfied God’s just demands for sin.

We are free from the bondage, power, and penalty of sin.

We are redeemed.

*******

We are redeemed through Christ’s blood.

Our redemption costs Christ His precious blood.

*******

This redemption flows to us in accordance with the riches of God’s grace.

We are saved to the uttermost.

And God continues to lavish His grace upon us.

*******

God is to be praised for the results of His redemption.

*******

Our sins are forgiven and forgotten.

When the Lord Jesus Christ died on Calvary, our sins were laid upon Him and He was judged in our place.

God judged Him as if He were guilty of all of our sins.

God extinguished His wrath in the body of His Son when His Son died on that cross.

Our sins have already been paid for.

We are forgiven.

*******

We have been reconciled with God.

We are brought into a grace relationship with God.

God accepts us.

*******

God is to be praised for the reasons of His redemption.

*******

We are redeemed because of God's amazing grace.

God chose us in Jesus when He could have condemned us to Hell.

God reached out to us in love to save us when He had every right and reason to send us to Hell.

We have been given everything that God has to offer and we deserved nothing.

*******

We are redeemed because of God's good pleasure.

God redeemed us to bring Him glory.


*******

We are redeemed so as to bring everything under Christ.

Christ is to be the head of all things.

One day, Christ will receive the glory, the honor and the worship due to Him.

*******

Some thoughts.
  • The fact that we are redeemed should cause us to bow before God in absolute submission. We should worship, praise and honor Him for His grace and His gifts.
  • We should give His Son the obedience, the reverence, the love, the worship and the praise He desires and deserves. We should do our part to accomplish God’s plan of exalting the Lord Jesus Christ.
Let us praise God for His redemption!
