How to live out your redemption
We now know that we have been redeemed from spiritual death, sickness and poverty. We also know that we’ve been redeemed into eternal life, divine health and supernatural provision. The next step is to know and learn how to live out your new identity in Christ. To live like the redeemed means to live free from the fear of death and live with the consciousness of the indwelling life of God that extends through eternity. It includes living healthy and strong and free of sickness and diseases. It also includes living free from lack and enjoying divine provision: in short, living a wholesome life. While all the above mentioned belong to us, it is not automatically active, we have to activate it to live it out and release it.
The first step in living out our redemption is through knowledge. You shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. You need to know that you have been redeemed by Christ. Your redemption must be real to you.
The second step is faith. Faith begins when the will of God is known. When you know that in Christ you are redeemed from spiritual death, sickness and poverty, then you have the audacity to believe for freedom from these things. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
The next step is to talk and act like the redeemed. The proof of your faith is in your words and actions. The way you behave confirms what you believe. In 2 Corinthians 4:13, Paul says, I believe therefore I speak. The Bible says you shall have what you say. So begin to declare that you have eternal life, you have divine health and divine provision. Faith is released by declaring what you believe and expect with unadulterated conviction.
The next step is ‘never look back.’ Be persistent and patient. You may still be making mistakes from time to time but stick with your confession of faith. Don’t bow to pressure of condemnation that you are not good enough. Keep your focus on the ability that Christ has given you.
At all cost, avoid bitterness and unforgiveness. They cut you from the supplies of redemption.
Rejoice for every victory won and follow the process again. This principle applies to every area of our walk of redemption.
