Redeemed - To buy or pay off; clear by payment.
That's what Christ has done for us! We've been redeemed - payed for with His blood.
I've been listening to this song quite a bit lately and each time one line gets me. In fact, I find myself repeating it often when I struggle with something:
"And you look at this prisoner, and say to me son, 'Stop fighting a fight that's already been won'."
Wow, we do that a lot, don't we? Fight battles that God's already won for us--even if we haven't yet seen the victory, it's there.
If you're fighting today; fighting your past, fighting your discouragement, fighting depression or addiction...whatever your fight is, God's calling to you, "Stop fighting, I've already won that battle."
Let Him free you.
Christ has set us free to live a free life. So take your stand! Never again let anyone put a harness of slavery on you. (Galatians 5:1, MSG)
