The Marvelous Grace Of Redemption (Ephesians 1:7-10)Rev. Bob Anderson, April 18, 2021
Preached at a Sunday Morning service
A question for all of mankind is, "What do I do with my sin?" Scripture tells us that all have turned aside from God. We judge ourselves, concluding, "I'm a pretty good person," while suppressing the truth that we are all sinners. In Christ, the righteousness of God is revealed, with the power to make us holy and blameless before the Father. The Holy Spirit guarantees that this will happen. We are released from bondage to sin, because He loved us and paid our debt in His blood. The Bible is full of the word, redemption. All God's wrath was placed on Jesus, who is our cup of blessing. By this we have forgiveness of sins, wisdom and knowledge of Him. We are blessed by the application of redemption in the ordo salutis. In this redemption accomplished, there is hope and assurance of restored harmony. Joy abounds in the life of the Christian.

Ephesians 1:7–10 (Listen)
7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace, 8 which he lavished upon us, in all wisdom and insight 9 making known to us the mystery of his will, according to his purpose, which he set forth in Christ 10 as a plan for the fullness of time, to unite all things in him, things in heaven and things on earth.
