The Principle of Redemption

Redemption is a principle that a believer must have alive in his heart and apply to every situation he faces in this life. “For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:17). Jesus was always occupied with redeeming situations. He did not get overwhelmed by problems, but rather He realized that redemption would always be the provision.

Daily there are immeasurable opportunities for believers to reveal Christ’s redemption through the situations they encounter. I Peter 1:18 teaches that Christ has redeemed us from the vanity and cares of this life. Titus 2:14 describes how the Lord will deliver us from all iniquity, which is a mental provision for sin. Jesus has not only given the Christian a way not to make a provision for his flesh, but He actually delivers him from the iniquity.

“Walk in wisdom toward them that are without, redeeming the time” (Colossians 4:5). Redeem means to make the most for God out of every minute that He gives the child of God. Ask your Heavenly Father to show you clearly the opportunities that He has given to you. Whenever difficult situations arise, remember that where there are great obstacles there are also great opportunities to reveal Christ’s great redemption. Truly, “your redemption draweth nigh” (Luke 21:28b).
