He is Redeemer
What a wonderful thing redemption is. When we mess up or have off days, we have someone in our court. Someone who has our back. Someone who loves us more than we will ever know. I am very thankful for it and for Him. Our Redeemer (Isaiah 44:24.
Everyone is in need of redemption. The Bible says "all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God" (Romans 3:23). Jesus is our Redeemer, and the benefits of His redemption include eternal life, forgiveness of our sins, freedom, deliverance, and peace with God.
If we are redeemed, then we were once bound in slavery. We were bound to sin and God purchased our freedom by sending His Son to die on the cross for our sins. We are forever free.
Those moments when you feel broken and alone. Friend, you're free, and you have the power to claim that in the name of Jesus. Don't let it keep you bound and in slavery. Jesus died for a purpose. Don't let that go to waste.

In your precious and Holy name. Amen.
