“For your Maker is your Husband—the Lord of hosts is His name—and the Holy One of Israel is your Redeemer; the God of the whole earth He is called.” – Isaiah 54:5
The promise of God here is magnified in His commitment to deliver his people from their captivity, the promise of a kinsman to free us from the shadow of death and transfer us into the fullness of the Kingdom.
The slavery of the consequences of sin are so deeply embedded in our world that we cannot escape its invading influence in our thinking and emotions. It slowly seeps away our trust and delight in pleasing our Father, but Christ is our redeemer.
Jesus Christ purchased for us an eternal redemption. His blood poured out for us cleanses our conscience from all condemnation, all guilt, all shame and all feelings of separation.
Redemption means deliverance form all captivity and entry into the unfading glory of God.
Jesus Christ entered the world to bring you into the glory presence of God, to release you from the prison of guilt and fee you from the dudgeon of condemnation.
The baby born in a manger, to a teenage girl was the promised redeemer, the sacrifice given for you to deliver you from all your captivity.
