Psalm 34:22 The Lord redeemeth the soul of his servants: and none of them that trust in him shall be desolate. ~ Jesus Christ paid the ransom for our lives. His life was the price that was given in exchange for ours. He willingly laid his life down daily for others when he walked on earth and gave the ultimate sacrifice on a cross so that our lives could be redeemed from an evil task master who held us in bondage and imprisoned by sin and the weight of it.
I still remember the day that I gave my life to Jesus and accepted his forgiveness, love, and life. I felt the weight of the world lift off of my shoulders. It felt like someone gave me a shower on the inside and washed away every shame, every sin, and every condemnation that I felt and filled me with a love, a joy, and a peace that cannot be described with words. It was the highest high I had ever known. It was the purest, sweetest love I have ever encountered. And Jesus did it all for me! When I think of all that he gave FOR my life and gave TO my life, it humbles me and fills me all over again with a gratitude and thankfulness that can never be expressed in its fullest with words only. That is why I love him so much. From the day that I gave him my life and accepted his, he has never left me. He has never forsaken me. I have never felt dead or desolate like I did before Christ. I no longer hate myself but embrace who God has made me to be. I am so thankful today for what the life and the blood of Jesus has done for me. And the awesome things is, he did the same FOR YOU!! All you have to do is receive what he’s already paid for. He’s already purchased this life for you, all you have to do is by faith accept it and take it as your own. He is so good!
