Praise to the Lord Who RELEASED US

 “…Jesus Christ, … To Him who loves us and RELEASED US from our sins by His blood–” 

 Revelation 1:5

There are many things from which we might like to be released. We might like to be released from the burden of our taxes. We might like to be released from financial obligations. We might like to be released from the hospital. We might like to be released from a burdensome job. We might like to be released from a commitment. We might like to be released from a grudge someone holds toward us. But, ahh, take a deep breath. Take a moment and ponder what it means that Jesus Christ has RELEASED us from our sins. The Greek word RELEASE means to set free one bound with chains. Ponder even more deeply that our RELEASE came at the cost of Jesus’s life. With a grateful heart, we give genuine thanks to Him. True, we may have other things from which we would love to be released. But today we can be thankful, truly thankful for being RELEASED from our sins. 

Lord Jesus Christ, our minds can’t get around the tremendous gift of salvation You purchased for us with Your blood. We love You, THANK YOU, and praise You for RELEASING US FROM OUR SINS!  You are a great and loving Savior!
