“Knowing that you were not redeemed with corruptible things, like silver or gold, from your aimless conduct received by tradition from your fathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and spot” I Peter 1:18‭-‬19

Ransom is the price paid to secure the release of anyone that is abducted. Usually, the amount is huge and beyond what the abductee or relations can afford. Hence the need for negotiation. As long as the required sum is yet to be paid, the victim remains in bondage and under severe torture that is better imagined than experienced.

Similarly, as a result of sin: and disobedience to God’s command, every mankind was abducted by Satan who held us in his bondage and subjected us to oppression, sorrow, and grief. However, in our case, no kinsman is rich enough to meet the demand of Satan for our release because everyone is a captive of the tyrant, the Devil.

At last, God sent Jesus, His only Son to be our Kinsman Redeemer. He went to the cross and made the greatest transaction in human history not with perishable SILVER and GOLD but with His PRECIOUS BLOOD, He paid the ransom once and at one moment to secure your freedom from the bondage and oppression of Satan.

Jesus Christ, by His death, has paid the full penalty for your justification from condemnation, your deliverance from captivity, and your reconciliation from enmity with God. And by the blood of His cross, He has washed you from every stain of your sins and canceled all your indebtedness with their consequences.

By implication, you are now a son of God, Abraham’s seed and heir according to the promise. You have been set free from all GENERATIONAL CURSES and brought into GENERATIONAL BLESSINGS courtesy of the ransom paid by Jesus by His life which He exchanged with your own life on the Cross where He died over 2000 years ago. Congratulations and Happy Easter Celebration!

Your brother,
