Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, Whom He has redeemed from the hand of the adversary.
This verse is so simple and yet so powerful. Let the redeemed of the Lord say so! Let the redeemed of the Lord identify themselves. As Christ followers, our voices are not to be silent about our salvation and our redemption. We are to tell those around us about all that Jesus has done for us.
How can we do that? There are many ways one could do such a thing. For our purposes, let us peruse three ways we can and should identify with Christ.
We can identify with Christ by our thoughts. Our thoughts are changed as we read and study the Bible, as we worship with the church, and as we submit our lives each day to the Holy Spirit. This is a process that takes time and effort. If we are willing to follow Christ He will change our thoughts and our minds. The redeemed ought to identify with Christ by how we think.
We should identify with Christ through our words. We will be judged by our words and our words have power. Our words are to be salt and light in the midst of a decaying world- salt to bring healing for lost souls and light to reveal the truth. (Matthew 5:13-16) May our words be words that bring life, peace, and salvation to those around us.
We must identify with Christ in our actions. John implores us to love in word and deed. (1 John 3:18) James tells to be not simply hearers of the word but doers as well. (James 1:22-23) Deeds and actions that glorify Christ help us to identify with our Savior. After all, even Jesus went about doing good! (Acts 10:38)
Let the redeemed of the Lord say so. And may we say it today, tomorrow, and every day!
