Christ Our “Redemption” by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

Christ Our "Redemption" by Pastor Chris Oyakhilome

In whom we have redemption through
his blood, the forgiveness of sins,
according to the riches of his grace
(Ephesians 1:7).

he word, “redemption” in the verse above is
translated from the Greek, “apolutrosis,”
which means deliverance, redemption, and
more importantly, riddance. While these are synonyms
of “apolutrosis,” it’s important to understand riddance
in the context.

The Bible says, “And call upon me in the day
of trouble: I will deliver thee, and thou shalt glorify
me” (Psalm 50:15). That’s God assuring His people of
deliverance. But now, He has become your riddance,
meaning that it doesn’t matter what trouble you get
into; He plucks you out; He’ll rid you of that trouble.

Proverbs 12:13 says, “…But the righteous shall
come out of trouble” (ASV). That means the righteous
may or could get into trouble, but there’s a guarantee
of deliverance: Christ! Christ is his deliverance! The
mess you’re in could have been self-inflicted or a result
of misjudgements; Christ is your assurance that you’re
coming out of the trouble, because He’s your riddance.
Glory to God!

Christ being your redemption (riddance) means
He makes up for your errors. Every mistake, every sin,
has been laid to His charge. He’s obligated to save you.
He’ll help you out of any quagmire, not because you
earned it by your works or efforts, but because you have a ransom in Christ Jesus. He plucks your feet out
of the miry clay (Psalm 40:2). Hallelujah!

So, when you make a mistake or get into trouble,
be bold to call on Him. He’s not intimidated by your
troubles. No wonder the Psalmist said, “But I will sing
of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the
morning: for thou hast been my defence and refuge
in the day of my trouble” (Psalm 59:16). He’s your
deliverance and your Deliverer; your Rescuer; the One
who plucks you out of trouble. Glory to His Name

I have my riddance in Christ. It doesn’t matter what
troubles come my way; it doesn’t matter what
adversities I face; they’re of no effect, because Christ
is my riddance. He plucks my feet out of the miry
clay. Praise God!
