Scripture: Ephesians 1:7
In Ephesians 1:7 we transition to sonship gift number six for us to receive and walk in. Ephesians 1:7 says, “In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace…” The Greek word for redemption is ap-ol-oo-too-sis, and it means to liberate through a ransom or to pay a ransom price and to set free through the payment of a price. That price, as we know, is the matchless Blood of Jesus. When He made us accepted the very next thing He did was He redeemed all of our failures. He bought us out from the penalty of all of our failures and the price with which He did that was the blood of Christ. All of our failures are now redeemed through the blood of Christ. No more failure! It is in the sea of forgetfulness, gone and washed away. It is gone, it is over, it is done! “Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom the Lord has redeemed from the hand of the enemy.” (Psalm 107:2) Redeeming the past is a manifestation of covenant mercy!
