Summary: Eternal life requires redemption, so what does it mean to be redeemed. It is the act or process of buying back.

Redeemed Redeemed


Today there seems to be those that teach that there is many ways to God.

I would like to state the Word of God, the Holy Bible is the infallible Word of God and it states that there is only one way to God and that plan was given as a promise in Genesis 3:15 and continues from Genesis to Revelation.

John 3:16 confirms that the only to have eternal life is through God’s only begotten Son.

It requires redemption, so what does it mean to be redeemed?

The word “redemption” means “the act or process of buying back.”

When sin entered into the human race through Adam, it resulted in spiritual death for all humanity.

For man to be reconciled to God and have the relationship and fellowship with Him restored, it required redeeming humanity from the deadly consequence of sin.

Please stand with me as we read form The Word of God.


Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus:

Grace be to you, and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ.

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:

According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

Having predestinated us unto the adoption of children by Jesus Christ to himself, according to the good pleasure of his will,

To the praise of the glory of his grace, wherein he hath made us accepted in the beloved. Ephesians 1:1-6

Now we come to our scripture text for this morning.

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


Father as we come together this evening, open our hearts and minds to your understanding. Give to us the wisdom that only you can give.

Father may we grasp hold of the power of redemption, may we understand the awesome power that is in the blood and we learn to rest in your everlasting arms.

Father gives us the knowledge to share this redemptive power with others.

Father, may the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your presence this day.

I ask all these things in the awesome power of the redemptive blood of Jesus Christ, my savior, deliverer, shepherd, master and coming King. AMEN

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