Who is our (my) redeemer? Jesus Christ is our redeemer who was born of a virgin, ministered to the world during His earthly ministry as man and God, and then died on the cross at Calvary for the sins of the world. Why did Jesus die for humanity? We had broken our fellowship with God the Father, and we were destined for eternal separation from the Father.
Therefore, God, the Father gave His only begotten Son to redeem or buy back man’s soul from the clutches of Satan. We owe our lives, loyalty and gratitude to Jesus Christ for His redeeming work at Calvary. More importantly, Jesus did not remain on the cross or in His borrowed grave. The good news is that on Sunday morning our Saviour rose with all power in His hands. He has the power to heal the sick, mend a broken heart, comfort us when we are troubled, and provide salvation so that we may spend eternity with Him.
In the words of Job, “I know my redeemer Liveth,” because He cares for my (our) every need. He is there in there to lead, guide, and protect us in the mist of all life’s struggles.
Finally, as we approach this Resurrection season, we do so with the knowledge and gratitude that our sins have been blotted out by Jesus’ redemptive death on the cross. We are compelled to sing praises to God, Christ is alive. Hallelujah! I (we) have salvation.
