Bible Reading: Galatians 3: 1-29
Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: Galatians 3:13
To redeem is to buy back. The curse of the law is death-the penalty for breaking its commandments. Christ has delivered those under law from paying the penalty of death demanded by the law. He did not become sinful in Himself, but man’s sins were placed upon Him. Christ bore that penalty. It was then that it pleased the Lord to bruise Him and put Him to grief. He made His soul an offering for sin (Isa. 53:10).God had promised to bless Abraham and to bless all the world through him. The blessing of Abraham is really salvation by grace through faith. The penalty of death required by God must first be paid. So the Lord Jesus was made a curse in order that God might reach out to both Jews and Gentiles in grace. salvation is by faith, not law. The Bible says cursed is everyone who does not continue in ALL THINGS which are written in the book of the Law. The death of Christ delivered us from this curse and we receive mercy and grace though faith in Christ
Confession: I am redeemed from the curse of the law. I am free indeed.
