Good morning.


It is wonderful to face 2024 knowing God is our redeemer. Isaiah reminds us - "I have swept away your offenses like a cloud, your sins like the morning mist. Return to me, for I have redeemed you.” (Isaiah 44:22)


Go’el is the root word and refers to the laws of a kinsman redeemer. When a Hebrew had fallen into poverty and sold himself into slavery, property was sold to pay a debt, or a close relative had been murdered the next of kin would be their redeemer. They would pay the penalty, purchase back their relative from slavery, or avenge the death of their murdered kinsman. The laws of the kinsman redeemer were an object lesson for the redemption of the world back to God.


Redemption was not an afterthought that God came up with because His children would not obey Him. Redemption was the plan before time began. Christ on the cross would be the price God would pay to redeem the earth and buy back His children.


God, our Father, is our Redeemer. He gave everything He had to give us our freedom.


Have a great day knowing you have been redeemed.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
