The Price Of Redemption


The price
of our redemption

God’s own
precious Son

the firstborn
of His Holy Spirit

the cost –
eternity won.


“And Moses gave their redemption money to Aaron and his sons, according to the word of the LORD commanded Moses.”

Numbers 3:51. NKJV

Glory In The Lord


In Your presence
there can be no glory
of anything of
the flesh

for its You
who give me wisdom
redemption and


You are with me and are my glory.


“For you see your calling brethren, that not many wise according to the flesh, not many mighty, not many noble, are called.”

“. . . that no flesh should glory in His presence.”

“But of Him you are in Christ Jesus, who became for us wisdom from God – and righteousness and sanctification and redemption -“

“that, as it is written, ‘He who glories, let him glory in the LORD.’ “

1 Corinthians 1:26,29,30,31  NKJV   /    Jeremiah 9:34  NKJV

My Propitiation


We all have sinned
and fallen short

yet You
have made a way

through the blood
of Jesus Christ

by faith
we all have grace.


You are with me and are my propitiation.


“. . .for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, being justified freely by His grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus,”

“whom God set forth as a propitiation by His blood, through faith, to demonstrate His righteousness, because in His forbearance God had passed over the sins that were previously committed,”

“to demonstrate at the present time His righteousness that He might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.”

Romans 3:23,24,25,26 NKJV

Look Up


When the earth is in
full distress

and the signs are
very clear

look up, yes
lift up your head

for your redemption is
drawing near.

You establish my redemption.

“Now when these things begin to happen, look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near.” Luke 21:28 NKJV

You Have Me


My dear child
you do not need

to worry
fret or stew

like the world which looks
to useless things

you have Me
Holy and True.

My redemption is established in You.

“As for our Redeemer, the LORD of hosts is His name, the Holy One of Israel. ” Isaiah 47:4 NKJV

When I’m looking for

when I need
to be restored

I need look no
further than

Jesus Christ
my Lord.

A laid down life has a Redeemer.

“And coming in that instant she gave thanks to the Lord, and spoke of Him to all those who looked for redemption in Jerusalem. ” Luke 2:38 NKJV

Wait for Me
oh let your soul wait
and in My word
do hope

for with Me is mercy
and forgiveness
from which
redemption flows.

A laid down life has hope.

“But there is forgiveness with You, that You may be feared. I wait for the LORD, my soul waits, and in His word I do hope. O Israel, hope in the LORD; for with the LORD there is mercy, and with Him is abundant redemption.” Psalm 130:4,5,7 NKJV

“In Him we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace . . .”  Ephesians 1:7

I’ve seen shows where contestants have come back hoping to redeem themselves. It doesn’t always work out for them.

Lord, thank You for a grace so deeply rich that it went to the cross and back to redeem us.  And here’s a simple poem . . .

Rich Grace

In Him we have redemption
in Him we have grace

the forgiveness of sins
a forever resting place

adopted to Himself
according to His good will

accepted as beloved
with a Holy Spirit seal.

Jesus Said “No”

“And Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Do you suppose that these Galileans were worse sinners than all other Galileans because they suffered such things?'” Luke 13:2
“I tell you no; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” Luke 13:3

I thought I was too messed up, too far gone, too bad. But Jesus said, “No”.

Thank You, Lord, for the hope and joy of salvation and redemption when we turn away from our sins and call on You. And here’s a simple poem . . .

None Worse

Fingers point
surely we’re the worse
our conscience sears
we hurt because we hurt

but Jesus stands ready
to say “No” to all the pain
as soon as we are willing
to believe upon His name.
