Read: Romans 3:23-24
A redeemer is a person who comes to save, rescue, or deliver someone out of trouble by paying a great price for their freedom. Jesus Christ is considered our living redeemer because He came to save and deliver us out of sin by paying a great price for it. The price that Jesus Christ paid for our deliverance from sin was His life. He died upon the cross for our sins so that He may redeem us, deliver us, and save us from our sins. “All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23-24). Our sin was leading us to hell. But thanks be to God for sending His only begotten Son Jesus Christ, who redeemed us from our sin and shame and promised us eternal life. “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45).
Jesus intercedes for us before the Heavenly Father. Gal. 3:13 says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, “Cursed is everyone that hangs on a tree” (Gal. 3:13). The penalty for our sins was already paid by Jesus on the Cross. We might feel guilty and overburdened by the weight of our sin, but we can confess and repent to God. We can find redemption in Jesus Christ because He is our Living Redeemer. 1 Pet. 1:18-19 says, “…you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot.”
