The chain of redeeming love now holds them!
"For you know that it was not with perishable things such as silver or gold that you were redeemed from the empty way of life handed down to you from your forefathers, but with the precious blood of Christ, a lamb without blemish or defect!" 1 Peter 1:18-19
Your time is redeemed—use it as a consecrated talent in His cause.
Your minds are redeemed—employ them to learn His truth, and to meditate on His ways.
Your eyes are redeemed—let them not look on vanity; close them on all sights of folly and evil.
Your feet are redeemed—let them trample on the world and climb the upward hill of Zion and bear you onward in the mark of Christian zeal.
Your tongues are redeemed—let them only sound His praise, and testify of His love, and call sinners to His cross.
Your hearts are redeemed—let them love Him wholly, and have no place for rivals.
A redeemed flock should live in redemption's pastures. The Redeemer's freedmen should evidence, that they are called to holy liberty, and that their holy liberty is holy service. The chain of sin is broken—and the chain of redeeming love now holds them!
