LESSON 5 JESUS CHRIST REDEEMED US
REDEEM = to buy back, set free
HOW DID JESUS REDEEM US?
Philippians 2:5-8 5 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 8 And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death-- even death on a cross!
How Did Jesus Redeem Us? He humbled, that is, emptied Himself of the full use of His divine power that was His and became fully a human being.
How Did Jesus Redeem Us? The Steps of Christ’s Humiliation: 1 conceived 2 born 3 suffered 4 crucified 5 died 6 buried

WITH WHAT DID JESUS REDEEM ME?
Ephesians 1:7 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God's grace
Isaiah 53:5-6 5 But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed. 6 We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.
1 Peter 1:18-19 18 For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, 19 but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect. VIP PASSAGE
2 Corinthians 5:21 21 God made him(Jesus) who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him(Jesus) we might become the righteousness of God.
With What Did Jesus Redeem Me? The price Jesus paid to redeem me was His suffering and death as an innocent substitute.
Application: Agree or Disagree: When we see a picture of Jesus’ bloody body hanging on the cross, we should feel sorry for him.
Application Response Yes, we should feel sorry for him, but we should think of much more than just that. Jesus went through that because of our sin. By shedding his blood, and suffering and dying, Jesus paid the price of redeeming us.
Application A friend of yours who doesn’t know much about Jesus says to you, “I don’t see why you make such a big deal about Jesus’ sacrificing his life for you. Many people throughout history have sacrificed their lives to save other people.” How would you answer your friend?
Application Response: One thing you would want to point out to your friend is that Jesus did not just save us from injury or death but from an eternity in hell. And you could add that Jesus did not just save us to live a few years longer in this world but to live forever with him in heaven.
FROM WHAT DID JESUS REDEEM ME?
Romans 6:16-23 16 Don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves, you are slaves to the one whom you obey--whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness? 17 But thanks be to God that, though you used to be slaves to sin, you wholeheartedly obeyed the form of teaching to which you were entrusted. 18 You have been set free from sin and have become slaves to righteousness.
Romans 6:16-23 (Cont) 19 I put this in human terms because you are weak in your natural selves. Just as you used to offer the parts of your body in slavery to impurity and to ever-increasing wickedness, so now offer them in slavery to righteousness leading to holiness. 20 When you were slaves to sin, you were free from the control of righteousness. 21 What benefit did you reap at that time from the things you are now Ashamed of? Those things result in death! 22 But now that you have been set free from sin and have become slaves to God, the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result is eternal life. 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? 1. From sin’s guilt and slavery
Romans 6:23 23 For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.
2 Timothy 1:10 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
John 11:25-26 25 Jesus said to her, I AM the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; 26 and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. Do you believe this?"
From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? 1. From sin’s guilt and slavery 2. From death, so I can now have eternal life
Genesis 3:15 15 And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your offspring and hers; he will crush your head, and you will strike his heel."
1 John 3:8 8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.
Hebrews 2: Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death--that is, the devil-- 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.
From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? 1. From sin’s guilt and slavery 2. From death, so I can now have eternal life 3. From the devil’s power, so I am no longer his slave
From What Did Jesus Redeem Me? THREE ENEMIES OF MY SOUL DEVIL SIN DEATH JESUS DESTROYED THEIR POWER!
THE RESULT OF JESUS’ WORK OF REDEEMING ME
Romans 3:23-24 23 for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24 and are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus.
The Result of Jesus’ Work of Redeeming Me God has justified me (declared me “Not Guilty”) and all people. This is a gift of God’s grace (undeserved love and mercy).
Application Agree or disagree: Right now, in God’s eyes, it is just as though you and I had never broken any of God’s laws even once in our entire lives.
Further Application Tell several things that are wrong with this statement: Jesus’ death made it possible for my sins to be forgiven, but they aren’t actually forgiven until I believe.
WHAT I AM NOW FREE TO DO
Luke 19:1-10 Zacchaeus the Tax Collector 1 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. 2 A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. 3 He wanted to see who Jesus was, but being a short man he could not, because of the crowd. 4 So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him, since Jesus was coming that way.
Luke 19:1-10 (Cont) 5 When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, "Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today." 6 So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. 7 All the people saw this and began to mutter, "He has gone to be the guest of a 'sinner.' " 8 But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, "Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount." 9 Jesus said to him, "Today SALVATION has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham. 10 For the Son of Man came to seek and to save what was lost."
1 Corinthians 6:19-20 19 Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; 20 you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body.
2 Corinthians 5:14-15 14 For Christ's love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. 15 And he died for all, that those who live should no longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again.
1 Peter 2:24 24 He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; by his wounds you have been healed.
Application Evaluate this statement: Because Jesus took away the guilt of our sins, we shouldn’t be bothered by the fact we fall into sin every day.
Response Our sins should not bother us in the sense that we might doubt that they are forgiven. Because of Christ’s saving work, God forgives all our sins. There isn’t any condemnation (see Romans 8:1). But Jesus’ great love for us doesn’t lead us to be careless or nonchalant about our sins. Instead, we hate sin and want to show our thanks by avoiding sin. (Romans 6:1,2)
Titus 2:14 14 who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good.
What I Am Now Free To Do Jesus redeemed me to set me free for a life of serving Him.
