Understanding and Forgiveness – Wisdom and Redemption

In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. (Ephesians 1:7-8)

It is through the blood of Christ that we are redeemed.  Without His shed blood, without His sacrifice for our sin, we would be lost to eternal damnation.  The songwriter says, I can sing a song that the angels cannot sing.  I have been redeemed.  This redemption came with a great price.  It came with a great sacrifice.  That is the sacrifice of the Son of God, Jesus Christ.  He gave His all including His very life.  As if that was not enough, after we were redeemed, then God abundantly give us grace.  It is through this grace that we receive His wisdom and His understanding.  What a mighty God we serve.  What a wise God we serve.  What an understanding God we serve.  We have life, because of His grace.  I don’t know about you but I can say, as for me His grace is sufficient.  Praise be to God.
