To redeem means to restore, to recover, to indemnify, to deliver or compensate for a fault. In Christian theology, redemption refers to the deliverance of Christians from sin. It assumes an important position in salvation because the transgressions in question form part of a great system against which human power is helpless.

Who needs redemption?

  1. Those in bondage to sin and satan (Romans 6:1) but Luke 5:32 shows God’s redemptive plan.
  2. Those who are oppressed and afflicted (Exo. 1:14) but Jeremiah 15:21 shows we are covered in God.
  3. Those caught in the web of sin, temporarily enjoying the fruit of unrighteousness. Isaiah 54:8 reveals God’s compassionate love.
  4. Those whose mind have become a battlefield for both good & bad. Hosea 13:14a shows God’s redemptive plan.
  5. Those who are religious but have not encountered Jesus yet
  6. Those who are in high positions but have no position in Christ Mark 10:25
  7. Those who are bruised (Isaiah 42:1-3)
  8. Those whose faith in God are failing due to challenging situations. Isaiah 49:26 shows our victory in Christ.
  9. Those who have suffered losses of all kinds, health-wise, spiritually, financially BUT the bible says in Exodus 6:6 that God will redeem and deliver

The way forward: 1saiah 43:1-4.
