. . . You are not your own? For you were bought at a price;
therefore, glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.
1 Corinthians 6:19-20.
When you go to redeem something, you are actually purchasing it, paying for it in full, or buying it. Like the kinsman redeemer, Boaz, redeemed Ruth (Ruth 4).
We who have trusted in the Redeemer have been bought by His precious blood. To be redeemed means to take ownership of it by paying a specified sum or to purchase it back, to ransom, to liberate or to rescue from someone or something and that is precisely what the Son of God, the Lord Jesus Christ has done for those who trust in Him. We have been liberated from the slavery to sin; we have been bought by the blood of Christ; we have been rescued from the wrath of God.
Our redemption was accomplished by the obedient Saviour. He was, in the words of the apostle Paul, “obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross”
Father, You have bought me at a very high price, the price of Your own dear Son, Jesus Christ, and I thank You from the depths of my heart. Amen.
