Wisdom For The Day Devotional 7 August 2022 By Bishop Mike Okonkwo – Your Redemption Is Guaranteed
TOPIC: Your Redemption Is Guaranteed (TREM Devotional 7 August 2022)
“But the rulers of this world have not understood it, if they had, they would not have crucified our glorious Lord.” 1 Corinthians 2:8 (NLT)
If the devil ever knew that God was going to pull off a master’s stroke that would bring permanent deliverance for mankind, he wouldn’t crucify Jesus. If he knew that through the death of Jesus, victory was going to come; if he knew that through death, there will be multiplied billions around the world that will receive Christ as Lord; he would not have pulled that stunt. That is why I know that every stunt that he has pulled in your life is turning around for good.
In the book of Colossians 1: 27, the bible declares that “…Christ in you is the hope of glory”. That means confident and joyful expectation of glory. The book of Hebrews 9:11-12 says; “but Christ being come an high priest of good things to come, by a greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this building; neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his blood he entered in once…” Jesus is not repeating the sacrifice. It is a once and for all sacrifice that provided access into the holy place which had been locked down all through the years until He came. No one enters the holy of holies except the high priest, once every year. But Jesus came in and entered just once and the veil of the temple was broken, so that we can now have unhindered and unrestricted access. He entered to obtain eternal redemption for us. It is not temporal. Our redemption is eternal. It is guaranteed and assured. We have an eternal inheritance. Some packages came with our redemption: The things that accompany salvation.
Stop being afraid and wondering about your future. Your future is secured. God has covered your past, present, and future. He has obtained eternal redemption for you Your story will not end in shame. It will end in glory.
