Message: Imagine Redemption
Everybody is in need of redemption. God sent his son, Jesus, to pay the penalty and redeem us from our sin. Those in Christ are no longer slaves to sin because we are redeemed. Everything changes when you are redeemed. In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus taught about the Beatitudes or blessings, and how the redeemed can be blessed. If you have been redeemed, if you have Jesus, you are blessed. A blessed person is someone who is in an enviable position to receive God’s incredible favor and grace.
Jesus says blessed are the…
- poor in spirit
- those who mourn
- the meek
- those who hunger and thirst for righteousness
- the merciful
- the pure in heart
- the peacemaker
- the persecuted/slandered
Have you been redeemed? Are you walking with Jesus? Are you doing what He asked you to do? Imagine redemption! Jesus wants redeem the lost. Jesus wants to mend the broken pieces of your life and make you something beautiful for His glory. He wants to redeem your brokenness.
“For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,and all are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.” Romans 3:23-24 NIV
