Theme: Redeemed through the blood
The price paid in full
Text: Romans 5:6-9
6 You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him!
The only redemption from the death penalty was for someone to die in your stead. But the issue was who would take that penalty on our behalf.
This is where the greatest love story is shared. We were God’s enemies, howbeit, Christ accepted to die for us. The point worth noting is that most people will not be willing to die even for an upright person, how much more a sinner. But God showed us His love by sending His Son t die on our behalf.
Christ has fulfilled all the requirements of the law to pay our ransom and redeem our souls. Easter is not just a moment to reflect on His love for us and what His finished work means to us.
