 MEDITATIONS ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE

By Glenn H. Jackson

 

 

______...."This book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB

 

 

 

WHAT WE ARE IN CHRIST

 

*____Rom. 3:24, "Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus."

 

____Our redemption is in Christ. No one can rob us of it.

 

____It was God's own work. He is satisfied with it.

 

____Eph. 1:7, "In whom we have our redemption through his blood, the remission of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace."

 

____It is according to the riches of His grace.

 

____Not a beggarly Redemption, barely redeemed, but a vast God-sized Redemption.

 

____Col. 1:13-14, "Who delivered us out of the authority of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of the Son of His love; in whom we have our redemption, the remission of our sins."

 

____It translated us out of Satan's realm into His own Love Kingdom.

 

____In this translation, He made us sons.

 

____1 Cor. 6:20, "For you were bought with a price."

 

____1 Peter 1:18-19, "Knowing that you were redeemed, not with corruptible things, with silver or gold, from your vain manner of life handed down from your fathers; but with precious blood, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot, even the blood of Christ."

 

____Redeemed with the blood of Christ.

 

____Redeemed from Satan.

 

____Redeemed from the claims of justice.

 

____The price was paid to justice.

 

____1 Cor. 7:23, "You were bought with a price; become not bondservants of men."

 

____Gal. 5:1, "For freedom did Christ set us free: stand fast therefore, and be not entangled again in a yoke of bondage."

 

____Stand fast in your liberty.

 

____God set you free. You are free.

 

____Satan has no claim on you. Justice has no claim on you. Neither Satan nor Justice can hold you.

 

____You are a New Creation, a child of God.

 

____You have been redeemed from the hand of your enemy.

 

____You are to take this fact seriously.

 

____You are to order your life accordingly.

 

____Rom. 6:14, "For sin shall not have dominion over you."

 

____Satan was defeated by the Master. That defeat stripped him of his ability to take you captive again, without your cooperation.

 

____You see, there are two sides to Redemption.

 

____One is Jesus paying the price of your redemption, satisfying the claims of justice.

 

____And the other, is Jesus defeating your enemy and breaking his dominion.

 

____Col. 2:15, "Having despoiled the principalities and the powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it."

 

____Here we have a picture of Jesus putting off from Himself the hosts of hell, breaking their dominion, and rising from the dead.

 

____Heb. 2:14, "Since then the children are sharers in flesh and blood, he also himself in like manner partook of the same; that through death he might bring to nothing him that had the power of death, that is, the devil."

this is so beautiful and such a testimony to the Lord's healing power and sanctification through our suffering. Much of my walk with Christ is similar to yours.
