The Definition of Christian Redemption

Bible Summary. The definition of Christian redemption is that it is the end, the death, to the controlling power of sin in our lives. Jesus paid the ransom and took on the punishment for our sin so that we can be saved from the control and results of sin. Redemption will occur not only for us spiritually, but also physically. Our body will change from mortal to immortal. The final redemptive act of Christian redemption is the glorifying of our bodies.

Definition of Christian Redemption – The Old Man is Dead.

The definition of Christian redemption is that it is the end, the death, to the controlling power of sin in our lives. Jesus’ death on the cross and His subsequent resurrection proved that sin and death do not have control of us. Jesus’ act on the cross provides everything we need for redemption. Romans 6:6 advises us that Jesus’ crucification is the means that the body of sin (the old man) may be destroyed.

Romans 6:6, “Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin.”

Definition of Christian Redemption – We Must Be Born Again Spiritually.

The definition of Christian redemption includes being born again. Jesus paid the ransom and took on the punishment for our sin so that we can be saved. But we still have to accept this free gift that Jesus gave to us. 1st Peter 1:23 advises us of the redemptive power of the cross and us being born again with an incorruptible spirit.

1st Peter 1:23, “Being born again, not of corruptible seed, but of incorruptible, by the word of God, which liveth and abideth for ever.”

Redemption Act Of Our Bodies Glorified.

The definition of Christian redemption also addresses our physical body. Redemption will occur not only for us spiritually, but also physically. Our body will change from mortal to immortal. The final redemptive act of Christian redemption is the glorifying of our bodies. Romans 8:23 advises us that in the Last Days the redeemed will be fully adopted into God’s house having received His incorruptible spirit and an incorruptible body.

Romans 8:23, “And not only they, but ourselves also, which have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption, to wit, the redemption of our body.”
