I know my redeemer lives….

Jesus is our Kinsman-redeemer

1 Peter 1 Even in his suffering, Job could exclaim: As for me, I know that my Redeemer lives, And at the last He will take His stand on the earth.[Job 19:25] Peter echoes that same thought in our reading today. “Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold,but by precious blood like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb, namely Christ.” [1 Peter 1:18-19]

Peter also reminds and encourages the reader with these words. You may not have seen Christ, “in the flesh” but you love Him. This is a challenge to us. Do we love Christ whom we have not seen? Do recognize Him as our redeemer?Are you singing this hymn “Turn your eyes upon Jesus” today? Are you turning your eyes upon Jesus? 

Today a precious saint is singing those words in “heaven time,” as she entered the gates there last night at 12:05 a.m. and now she sees Him face to face. How about you? Are you ready? Do you know the Redeemer
