When we began RHM, I was blown away by some of the prayer requests that we received. Many people confused God with Santa Claus. I remember one in p...

    David therefore departed there, and escaped to the cave of Adullam: and when his brothers and all his father's house heard it, they went down there to him. Everyone who was in distress, and everyone who was in debt, and everyone who was discontented, gathered themselves to him; and he became captain...
  • Peter answered him and said, 'Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the waters.' He said, 'Come!' Peter stepped down from the boat, and walked on the waters to come to Jesus. But when he saw that the wind was strong, he was afraid, and beginning to sink, he cried out, saying, 'Lord, save ...

One Drop of Blood

  • Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us. For it is written, 'Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree,' that the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Christ Jesus; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith. Galatians 3:13 WEB

    In Roman times, slaves were sold on an auction block under a spear. When a spear was held out over their head it signified that this was a slave for sale. In Romans 7:14 Paul wrote that he was a slave, sold under sin. Sin was the spear being held over him. Sin was the cause of him being a slave.

    A slave has no say about what they will do with their lives. It is up to the slave master to decide. One may be a cook, and another a prostitute. One may appear more respectable than another, but really they are just serving their masters wishes. Anyone unredeemed is in this state of existence. They are used by satan however he wishes to use them.

    Jesus came one day and bought us back. Redeemed literally means 'To Buy Back.' With His own blood, Jesus bought us slaves back from the devil and now we are free people. The devil can no longer make you be a prostitute or a drug dealer. His power over you is now broken. When you accept Jesus you are no longer a slave to sin.

    In fact, it goes much farther than that. Not only were we slaves that He bought back, we were set free from condemnation (John 3:18), free from judgement (John 5:24), free from the power of death (John 8:51), and our alienation from God ended because God adopted us into His own family (John 1:12). If therefore the Son makes you free, you will be free indeed' (John 8:36). Truly no one could have said it better.

    That said, what you feed in your life will grow, and what you starve will die. Each time that you resist temptation, you will grow stronger against it and it will become easier to resist. The opposite is true as well. Each time that you yield to temptation, you become weaker, and it becomes easier to do it the next time.

    With the precious blood of His only Son Jesus, God bought us back from slavery. No longer are we in bondage unless we choose to be by our own actions. He can open the cell door, but sometimes we remain in the cell because it is what we are used to. Through the Blood of Jesus, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil.

    Prayer: Father I thank You for saving me and setting me apart. I long for more of You in my life. Thank You for redeeming me from the curse of the law. Set me free from the things that hold me back and guide my every step. Take away the desires that are not of You, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.
