I reflected on my Redeemer the past two weeks.  As a believer, I know Christ as my Redeemer.  He bought my life with His. 

you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 Cor 6:20

It’s not an easy concept to fully understand.  But if you accept it, welcome Jesus into your heart (experience Him), He brings the Holy Spirit in you.  The Holy Spirit reveals those things that are hard to understand.  Even if you don’t have the words to explain it, you ‘get’ it.

Does redemption end there?  Is that all my Father redeems?  The old testament is full of instructions how Isrealites are to redeem.  Contemplating redemption brought it into clarity.

Fallen man, with free will, will do something to hurt others, who are often innocent.

God knew about the bad, but allowed the free will, free choices to happen.

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. Romans 8:28

This Romans passage reveals God’s redemption of those bad circumstances for those who trust in Him.  These bad circumstances do not bring Him glory, but in relying on Him through the circumstances, He redeems it for His glory.

There is drawing near to God.  Trusting in the security.  Keeping my confidence in God in my circumstance so that I don’t react, but response in a way that brings Him glory.  God is good!
