Jesus our Redeemer

Christ is our Redeemer

Isaiah  52-54 Redeemer!

Isaiah  echoes the voice of Job: As for me, “I know that my Redeemer lives and
that as the last he will stand upon the earth].” [Job 19:25] Over and
over, Isaiah reminds the children of God that they are redeemed. “You
shall be redeemed without money.” [Is 52:3 NJJV] “He has redeemed
Jerusalem.” [Is 52:9 NKJV]  The redemption price was exorbitant; it was
the very life of Christ, the Servant, who bore the iniquities of us all upon
his body.

We stand redeemed because of His sacrifice; He bore our iniquities that we might stand
righteous in His sight. The crucifiers made His grave with the wicked, but
Joseph of Arimathea, the rich man, offered his tomb for Christ to fulfill the
words of God. [Is 53:9-11 NKJV] “But with everlasting kindness, God says, He
will have mercy upon them because he is the Lord their Redeemer.” [Is 54:8

In 1775, Samuel Medley captured this thought in his hymn: “I know that my Redeemer
lives! What comfort this sweet sentence gives! He lives, he lives, who once was
dead; he lives, my ever living head!”

Stop and praise Him for His marvelous work of redemption. “The Lord of Hosts is His
name, and your Redeemer is the Holy One of Israel.” [Is 54:5 NKJV]
