Redeemed–what does that mean?

Redeemed

Seems like all I could see was the struggle
Haunted by ghosts that lived in my past
Bound up in shackles of all my failures
Wondering how long is this gonna last
Then You look at this prisoner and say to me “son
Stop fighting a fight it’s already been won”I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I’m not who I used to be
I am redeemed, I’m redeemed
All my life I have been called unworthy
Named by the voice of my shame and regret
But when I hear You whisper, “Child lift up your head”
I remember, oh God, You’re not done with me yet

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, now I’m not who I used to be

Because I don’t have to be the old man inside of me
‘Cause his day is long dead and gone
Because I’ve got a new name, a new life, I’m not the same
And a hope that will carry me home

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe away every stain, ’cause I’m not who I used to be

I am redeemed, You set me free
So I’ll shake off these heavy chains
Wipe every stain, yeah, I’m not who I used to be
Oh, God, I’m not who I used to be
Jesus, I’m not who I used to be
‘Cause I am redeemed
Thank God, redeemed

God wants to free you from whatever binds you. I know evil is hunting you because it hunts all of those who truly want to follow Jesus. Jesus, the Liberator, came to set us free. However, I know many Christians, Jesus followers, and they are bound by the Evil One and his hordes. Follow this series through 2013 that plays off the themes from the Lord of the Rings and be set free of all that binds you. Jesus wants you free!!

God wants to free you!
Let Him take away the pain, the sorrow, the sin…
Redeemed!
That’s you!

Be free!

    God is not done with any of us yet! Setting us free from the bondage of sin is just the beginning. I could not agree with you more.

    I really have liked this song since I first heard it. Truth carried by a melody…
