Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death. ~Romans 8:1-2
Jesus was very clear about His mission. “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” John 3:17. He is and always has been in the redemption business. A Redeemer has a very specific and unique position throughout the Bible. It is a position of authority and primacy. The redeemer is first in line to attribute value, protection and to win back the beloved.
In the Book of Ruth, chapters 2-4 we see the heart of God as a Redeemer in action. Boaz was a Kingdom Man. He was a man of honor and integrity. He valued Naomi, and did not scheme or deceive to advance his position in the family to restore her in the family. He treated her with kindness, love and respect. God blessed Boaz and Naomi, he blessed their marriage and He gave them a son whom they named Obed who was the father of Jesse, the father of David (Ruth 4:16).
We serve a King who redeems. He has declared each of us as valuable and worthy of love. All of Creation, all of our experiences, all of the Kingdom, God works for the good of those who love him and who have been called according to his purpose (Romans 8:28)
Daily Battle Order:
Consider & Pray - The Kingdom is ruled by a God who values you. He wants you to know Him and be in a relationship with you. He sent His Son to win you back and restore you in the family. As a Kingdom Man, ask God where you can, like Boaz, show His redemptive heart to those around you.
