Redemption

“In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace…” Ephesians 1:7

The elect were not self-redeemed, nor were we redeemed by will/works, nor by truth itself but by blood itself. As Israel was redeemed from Egypt, as Hosea redeemed Gomer, as a slave was redeemed out of the slave market, God redeemed His elect by the price of Christ’s blood.

All redemption has these characteristics:

1. The object can do nothing to redeem himself.

2. When the redemption is paid, the object is redeemed.

3. When Christ paid the redemption price of His own blood, the elect were redeemed.
