Christ Our Redemptive Sacrifice
The Son of God redeemed his people, all his people, and none but his people from the curse of the law. — “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” When the Word of God declares that “Christ hath redeemed us,” it does not mean that Christ made it possible for us to be redeemed. It means that the Son of God, by his sin-atoning sacrifice of himself at Calvary, purchased us out from under the curse of the law, loosed us from the bondage of the law, and delivered us from all sin and all its evil consequences.
Did the Lord Jesus redeem Judas Iscariot from the curse of the law? You know he didn’t. Of Judas, he said in Matthew 26:24 — “Woe unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! It had been good for that man if he had not been born.” But he did redeem his people!
Christ Jesus my discharge procured, The whole of wrath divine endured:
The law’s tremendous curse He bore. Justice can never ask for more.
Payment God cannot twice demand, first at my bleeding Surety’s hand,
And then demand the price from me, for whom Christ died at Calvary.
Be still, my soul, and find sweet rest. – The merits of my great High Priest,
His righteousness and precious blood, have satisfied the Holy God.
I’ll trust Christ’s efficacious blood, and never fear the wrath of God,
Since Jesus Christ has died for me, and lives for me to intercede!
