ConneXions - The Ransom of His life



The ransom of his life is costly

And what do you benefit if you gain the whole world but lose your own soul? – Matthew 16:26

Yet they cannot redeem themselves from death  by paying a ransom to God. Redemption does not come so easily, for no one can ever pay enough to live forever and never see the grave. – Psalm 49:7-9

And just as each person is destined to die once and after that comes judgment – Hebrews 9:27

For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many. – Mark 10:45

For there is only one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus. He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone. This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time. 1 Timothy 2:5-6

What we do see is Jesus, who was given a position “a little lower than the angels”; and because he suffered death for us, he is now “crowned with glory and honor.” Yes, by God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. – Hebrews 2:9

 For you know that God paid a ransom to save you from the empty life you inherited from your ancestors. And the ransom he paid was not mere gold or silver. It was the precious blood of Christ, the sinless, spotless Lamb of God. God chose him as your ransom long before the world began – 1 Peter 1:18-20

For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life through Christ Jesus our Lord. – Romans 6:23
