“Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is everyone that hangeth on a tree” Gal. 3:13
One of the strategies of the devil is to keep the believer caged in a world of guilt. He keeps reminding you of the things you have done and the areas you have missed it. He enlarges them before you to the extent of robbing you of the finished work of Calvary and magnifies the scripture that says: the soul that sinneth shall die (Eze. 18:20).
Beloved, I know the scripture cannot be broken, I know that the soul that sins shall die; but that is why Jesus came. He died, not for any sin He committed, rather He came into this world, took your place, took the punishment that was reserved for you, and exchanged His righteousness for your sinful nature. When He went to the cross, He went in your place so that you will not have to pay the price any more. He paid the ransom for your soul. The devil has no right to cage you in a world of guilt because Jesus paid the price.
However, if you do not come to terms with this truth, you will live in perpetual bondage. A clear understanding of the redemption truth is what gives you access to the redemption benefit. Because Jesus paid the price, sickness, poverty and death – all the rewards of sin – have been taken away and in its place, you have life and it is available to you in abundance. So, you can now live your life free of sickness, poverty and death.
As we celebrate the birth of Jesus in this season, be conscious of all that He paid for so that you can enjoy the full benefit. Ignorance is not an excuse; don’t be a cheap prey. don’t ever walk around with your head bowed; Jesus paid the price, so celebrate your freedom today.
