(Titus 2:14) “Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works.”
What is the difference between Redemption and Atonement? 1. Redemption is the act of someone being purchased or bought back from the slavery of sin. The wage of sin is death and all have died because of sin. Christ paid that wage to purchase those whom the father gave Him. All who are saved or ever will be saved were purchased by the Blood of Christ!
2. Atonement is the price that was paid to cover the debt. The life is in the blood and without the shedding of blood there is no remission of sin. The blood of Christ is our covering, better yet the cleansing agent that has reconciled us to God! The verse above said, “He gave Himself for US”! Him, Atonement! Us, Redeemed! He was the price, we were the product! Christ did not purchase a plan! He purchased a people!
(Leviticus 17:11) “For the life of the flesh is in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it is the blood that maketh an atonement for the soul.”
We have been bought, paid for, set apart and purified to live a life of good works for the Glory of God!
