Redeemed but Awaiting Redemption | In the Meantime, pt. 2
If you’re a follower of Jesus, you are redeemed - correct?
Well yes, of course.
We sing songs celebrating it.
We praise Jesus for being our redeemer.
We have verses like 1 Peter 1:18-19
18 knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, 19 but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.
So yes, we are redeemed.
But saying yes, we have redemption doesn’t tell the whole story. It’s only partially true. There's more to the story of redemption than that.
Yes we have redemption, but we’re also looking forward to the day of redemption.
This is the tension we live with in the meantime.
