Ransomed: (You are worth dying for.(click for more) "Not only are you held captive by evil, but a ransom is required for your release."

"A ransom?  Have I been kidnapped?" Robert asked mostly to himself… “You know about Jesus,” John explained. “He is the ransom.  God's Son came to cancel religion and establish relationship.  You will find God in religion, but you won't find religion in God once you get to know Him better."

Job 33:24, Mar 10:45, Isa 53:5-6, 1Jo 2:2, Joh 8:34-36: and he is merciful to him, and says, 'Deliver him from going down into the pit; I have found a ransom;”

  “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." 

  But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all. 

  And Christ himself is the means by which our sins are forgiven, and not our sins only, but also the sins of everyone. 

  Jesus answered them, "Most assuredly, I say to you, whoever commits sin is a slave of sin.  And a slave 

does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever.  Therefore if the Son makes you free, you 

shall be free indeed.”

Ransom is the price paid for release. Jesus gave His life to release us from bondage to sin and death, the grip of evil. The ransom had to be a perfect sacrifice. You see, God’s love supersedes the requirement of religion. His sacrifice paid the price!

God considers you to be worth dying for.

Will you let Him stand in your defense?
