Redeemed–what does that mean?


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 Love you Billy!

The miracle was the way God came to Billy, “I love you Billy!” just as his plan was to attempt suicide. Billy was so transformed by Jesus: “He changed Me, from the inside, not the outside.” Because Billy was willing to put his faith in an Almighty God, he saw many other miracles take place too.

What Jesus Offers

The last thing Jesus came to do was start another religion. He came to show us what life in the Kingdom of God looks like. Through the cross, Jesus offers us this same kind of life – a life lived in relationship with God.

Who is this God that we Worship?

The Tetragrammaton Yahweh intended to be prono...

I got a different glimpse into His Majesty today when I read Exodus 15.  This passage talks about the greatness of his majesty early and compares this God to all gods.  He performs great deeds and His Holiness is majestic.  This God is worthy of worship.

Here the LORD is capitalized and that means the root Hebrew word is YAHWEH who is the great I AM of Exodus 3:14.  The God who was and is and will be forever!  YAHWEH reflects the personal, caring, and shepherding nature of God who is among His people who guides and heals.  He creates us and protects us.  He is our warrior.

13“You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed;
you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.

Then we come to this verse 13 and the chapter really opens up to who He is to us and what he does.  His (steadfast) love is consistent towards us–never changing nor vascilating.  Our redemption is ALL His action and work–no work is done by His people for their redemption.  Our works are not acceptable for redemption–only Jesus’ work is.  Lastly, we have a promise that we will be guided by Him in the path we should go –ultimately, holiness, perfection, and Home(Heaven itself).

Names and Titles of Jesus Christ–the Lord is My Portion

Know Him as your Portion today.  He longs to fill you.  He longs to reveal Himself to you today.  Open your heart to Jesus, the Christ today, let Him in and let Him reign.  He will show you that He can supply.  He will be your Portion today.   Allow Him to be that to you.
