KJV:Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;
KJV:But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:
Have you ever lost something before and found it with someone who demanded that you should pay for it before you have it back ? Well you paying for it depends on how valuable it is for you.
Did you know that man sold himself as a slave to Satan through disobedience and since then man has been under the bondage and chains of the enemy. The will of man has been subjected to Satan and he has been controlling it.
That’s why there are many evil in the world today. No man want to do evil and no man wish to be known as evil doer. But just as Paul lamented in the book of Romans 7 : 15
KJV:For the good that I would I do not: but the evil which I would not, that I do. So is the life of bondage of every man born in this world.
The life of bondage is a terrible life. It’s more terrible than a to be in a physical prison. To chain the will of a man is to chain his identity and dignity and that’s exactly the work of Satan. Hear the cry of a life of bondage in Romans 7:24
KJV:O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?
However there’s a good news ! Someone has open the gate of that prison. Someone has the key that can open the chains that the enemy used to bound us. He has obtained a legitimate entrance into the prison yard to release as many that will believe in Him.
Who am I talking about here?. I am talking about Jesus Christ the only begotten Son of God who has come to pay the price for our redemption and to deliver us from all the works of the enemy.
How did he do this ?
The law of God has it that the wages of sin is death and that there is no remission of sin without death and blood. That’s why Jesus had to come inform of a man having blood so that he can give that blood for our redemption. Also He surrendered to die on the cross of Calvary to make sure that all our debts are paid in full measure.
Now that Jesus has done this you can only be bound by Satan either because of ignorance or unbelief. But the book of Romans 10:9 2KJV:That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.
KJV:For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.
