The Explanation of Redemption

  • One of the most important truths in the Bible has to do with the believer's relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
  • Before the new birth our relationship was with Adam and the effect was sin, condemnation, and death (Rom. 5:12-19). This was broken, however, in salvation, and we were brought into a relationship of spiritual life through and in the Lord Jesus. (John 10:28)
  • One explanation of this truth is found in the book of Ephesians.
    Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in hjeavenly places in Christ. Ephesians 1:3
