The word redeemed means to be set free from confinement or danger. Redeemed can also mean that something has been purchased or restored. Each of us, as Believers, has been purchased at a cost and restored to God’s original intent. Redeemed means that we are no longer imprisoned by sin, and God has removed us from the danger of being lost.
Recovery in Christ means that we have been released from the prison of sin and the prison of our own making. We are no longer slaves to our old ways of thinking and behaving. Christ is the key to the jail cell that kept us chained to our old ways of doing things. We step out of our confinement and into a new way of existing.
Christ did not purchase us to be placed on a shelf simply to be admired. There is a wonderful plan for our lives. We are here to show the world what real freedom looks like. This means we surrender to God’s plans for us and place our wills in His hands. Freedom comes through letting go of our wills and allowing God to be the master of our lives. We are redeemed, and we now live in Christ’s perfect freedom.
