“Ye were redeemed from your vain conversation with the precious blood of Christ” (I Pet. 1. 18, 19).
The word REDEEMED has a depth of meaning. It indicates particularly deliverance from slavery, by emancipation or purchase. The sinner is enslaved, under the hostile power of Satan, the curse of the Law, and sin. Now it is proclaimed “ye are redeemed through the blood,” which had paid the debt of guilt, and destroyed the power of Satan, the curse, and sin.
Where this proclamation is heard and received, there Redemption begins, in a true deliverance from a vain manner of life, from a life of sin. The word “REDEMPTION” includes everything God does for a sinner from the pardon of sin, in which it begins (Eph. 1:14; 4:30) to the full deliverances of the body by Resurrection (Rom. 8. 24).
