Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/25/13

This week’s scripture is from Colossians:

SONY DSC“He has delivered us from the power of darkness and conveyed us into the kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Col. 1:13-14)

Our Lord has redeemed us from all of our sins, all of the sins we committed before we first believed and sins since, and all sin that we will ever commit. Jesus took upon Himself all sin that ever was and ever would be, and by His sacrifice, by His blood, He brought us into redemption and delivered us from the power of the enemy of our souls.

We now live in the light of the Son of God, the Holy One, and if we are faithful to confess our sins and repent, then He is faithful to forgive us, for He shed His blood and died once and for all for everyone who will believe and come into the Light. All who will come are redeemed by His blood by His mercy and His grace. So let us humble ourselves before the Lord and confess our trespasses that we might continue in His love and in the power of redemption and forgiveness.

May you know the blessing of the Lord and the redeeming power of His blood.
