The Plan of Redemption

The Plan of Redemption



But when the right time came, God sent His Son, born of a woman, subject to the law.  God sent Him to buy freedom for us who were slaves to the law, so that He could adopt us as His very own children.  And because we are His children, God has sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, prompting us to call out “Abba, Father.”  Now you are no longer a slave but God’s own child.  And since you are His child, God has made you His heir.--------Galatians 4:4-7



It has been the desire of Almighty God to have a close intimate relationship with the crown of His creation, mankind.  And from the very beginning of creation up to this very day, that desire has never diminished.  He still has a deep desire for a close intimate relationship with mankind. 


The problem being is that mankind sinned against God, he disobeyed the Creator and had to be disciplined. That was when the fate of mankind changed.  However, the desire for a close, intimate relationship with His own creation was still deep in the heart of Almighty God, and God being a RIGHTEOUS God, came up with a set of laws to govern mankind’s behavior, but the law could not and did not make mankind RIGHT with God.


So God brought about the plan of REDEMPTION for the souls of mankind and to make a way for mankind to be made RIGHT with Him.  This is His plan:  When the right time came, God sent His Son to be the ONE and ONLY sacrifice for the sins of ALL mankind, He was born of a woman, He came in the flesh, in order to be able to relate to mankind and to purchase or REDEEM mankind from their sins and to release them from the bondage of the law. 


Then those who ACCEPTED His plan of REDEMPTION was adopted as God’s own Children and became a part of His family.  And because they became a part of His family, God sent His Holy Spirit to indwell them and gave them the right to call Him “Abba, Father” which is a very intimate and endearing title.  Thus mankind’s fate changed, all because of God’s plan of REDEMPTION. 


Those who have been REDEEMED by the shed blood of God’s ONE and ONLY Son, Jesus Christ, has gone from being an unrighteous sinner to a REDEEMED Child and Heir of the Almighty God.


If you have not been REDEEMED, then you are not part of God’s family.  You are still an unrighteous sinner in need of the Savior to set you free from the bondage of your sinful nature and to be made right with God, in order to have a close intimate relationship with Him and to be able to call Him “Abba, Father.” 


You have the opportunity right NOW to be one of the REDEEMED, by:  CONFESSING your sins to God and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU and is ALIVE, in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God, then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION and become part of God’s family and one of His heirs.  Do it NOW while you STILL can.  He’s waiting!!!
