Avail Yourself for the Redemption of the LORD – Captivity by sin is always burdensome when you are self aware, but there is an assured hope and newness when you avail yourself for the redemption of the LORD. Note: I am writing to the Christian that is self aware.
However, the condition of the non-believer is much more scarier on the account that both Christian and the non-believer alike would be judged someday and ‘soon’. Which side would you be at on that someday of judgement?
How do you Avail Yourself for the Redemption of the LORD?
John 3:16 demands you to have faith and believe in that redemption for it to manifest, it also worthy of note that God still loves you regardless of evil ways and placed a path towards your redemption. ‘For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.’ – John 3:17.
You ought to have faith in Christ Jesus as a way to avail yourself for the redemption process.
You ought to have availed yourself out of true repentance lest the redemption process would be meaningless to you.
What happens in the redemption process?
The ritual of purification from sin and redemption would be empty and meaningless apart from true repentance and the regenerating and empowering work of the Holy Spirit on the inner spirit of individuals.
God would not only restore you physically to the land, but would restore them spiritually, by giving them a new heart and new spirit to help them follow Him and do His will.
‘Then I will sprinkle clean water on you, and you shall be clean; I will cleanse you from all your filthiness and from all your idols. I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit within you; I will take the heart of stone out of your flesh and give you a heart of flesh. I will put My Spirit within you and cause you to walk in My statutes, and you will keep My judgments and do them. Then you shall dwell in the land that I gave to your fathers; you shall be My people, and I will be your God. ‘ – Ezekiel 36:25-28.
Availing yourself could take nothing from you except guarantee you the blessing of the LORD by being called His person with an inheritance(the land given to your fathers here and above).
What a joy it is Avail Yourself for the Redemption of the LORD. Heaven rejoices and you are surely on your way to getting a room prepared for.
Dear Christian, once you are redeemed, DO NOT go back to those filthiness nor your idols(not just images of worship but also lifestyle that go contrary to the Word of God that you worship). I urge you to keep the commands of God, perform them as His Holy Spirit leads you.
Dear LORD, cleanse me from all my filthiness and from all my idols. Give me a new heart and put a new spirit within me; take the heart of stone out of my flesh and give me a heart of flesh. Put in me Your Spirit and cause me to walk in Your ways, keeping Your Commandments and performing them.
