CHRIST OUR REDEMPTION

Eph.1.7 - "In Him We Have Redemption Through His Blood, The Forgiveness Of Our Trespasses, According To The Riches Of His Grace."

The word, “Redemption” in the verse above is translated from the Greek Word, “apolutrosis,” which means Deliverance, Redemption, and more Importantly, Riddance. While these are synonyms of “apolutrosis,” it’s important to understand riddance in the context.

The Bible says, “And Call Upon Me In The Day Of Trouble: I Will Deliver Thee, And Thou Shalt Glorify Me” (Psalm 50:15).

That’s God assuring His people of deliverance. But now, He has become your riddance, meaning that it doesn’t matter what, trouble you get into; He plucks you out; He’ll rid you of that trouble.

Proverbs 12:13 says, “...But The Righteous Shall Come Out Of Trouble” (ASV).

That means the righteous may or could get into trouble, but There’s A Guarantee Of Deliverance: Christ! Christ Is His Deliverance! The mess you’re in could have been self-inflicted or a result of misjudgements; Christ Is Your Assurance That You’re Coming Out Of The Trouble, Because He’s Your Riddance. Glory to God!

Christ being your redemption (riddance) means, He makes up for your errors. Every mistake, every sin, has been laid to His charge. He’s obligated to save you. He’ll help you out of any quagmire, not because you earned it by your works or efforts, but because you
have a ransom in Christ Jesus. He Plucks Your Feet Out Of The Miry Clay (Psalm 40:2). Hallelujah!

So, when you make a mistake or get into trouble, be bold enough to call on Him. He’s not intimidated by your troubles. No wonder the Psalmist said, “But I Will Sing Of thy power; yea, I will sing A Loud Of Thy Mercy In The Morning: For Thou Hast Been My Defence And Refuge In The Day Of My Trouble” (Psalm 59:16). He’s your deliverance and your Deliverer; your Rescuer; the One who plucks you out of trouble. Glory to His Name
forevermore!

CONFESSION:

I Have My Riddance In Christ. It Doesn’t Matter What Troubles Come My Way; It Doesn’t Matter What Adversities I Face; They’re Of No Effect, Because Christ Is My Riddance. He Plucks My Feet Out Of The Miry Clay. Praise God!
