The goal of Redeemed Three has two sides. On one hand, our burden is to motivate fellow servants of Christ to “pick up the shovel” and get serious in their relationship with God. On the other, writing a blog of this nature forces each of us to think deeper about our faith and to be constantly looking to apply biblical truth to our daily lives. In essence, we are writing this blog as an intentional means of pursuing godly discipline in the area of personal Bible study and application.
What’s with the title, you ask? The “three” is simply because there are three of us writing this blog, but the real key is the word “redeemed”. We chose “redeemed” as our title because it is the most powerful, soul-saving truth of the Christian faith. The Bible tells us that apart from God we were “dead in our trespasses and sins” (Ephesians 2:1), guilty offenders against God’s holiness and perfection—without hope, with “darkened hearts” (Romans 1:21)
Over 2,000 years ago, in a stunning move of eternal grace and mercy Jesus Christ took the punishment for our sin upon Himself, absorbing the wrath of God and dying as the perfect sacrifice for our sin upon the cross. Three days later, He rose from the grave, conquering death itself and now reigns in Heaven as our advocate before God. “He (God) rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.” (Colossians 1:13-14)
This is the very foundation of our lives! We have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus Christ and have forgiveness of our sin! This redemption is the glorious truth that drives us to devote our lives to loving God and serving Him. And so, we are: redeemed three.
We are not anyone special, and we don’t claim to be. We are simply three guys who love God and desire to glorify and honor the King of Kings. We believe the only way to grow spiritually and remain steadfast in our sin-infested culture is to stand firm on the Word of God and our hope is to provide small, thought-provoking articles on day-to-day topics for the follower of Christ. Above all, our desire is to point people away from our words and to THE Word—the Bible.
