Sermon: Four Benefits of redemption


This is the only text that in four consecutive leading words presents the complete view of Christ’s redemptive work. Let us see.

Read 1 Corinthians 1:30

1. Wisdom

A. By correcting our errors of opinion and practice, (Proverbs 4:11)

B. By confirming what is right and good, (Proverbs 2:9-10)

C. By revealing what has up to now been unknown, (Romans 16:25; Galatians 1:11-12)

2. Righteousness

A. By His own perfect obedience to the Law, (Romans 5:19)

B. By His vicarious and justifying death for sin, (1 Peter 3:18)

C. By His intercession at God’s right hand, (Romans 8:34)

3. Sanctification

A. By His perfect example of holiness, (2 Corinthians 5:21; Hebrews 4:15)

B. By His regeneration, imparting the new nature, (2 Corinthians 5:17)

C. By the gift of the indwelling Spirit of Holiness, (John 16:13)

4. Redemption

A. By resurrection of the body: redemption of the body, (Romans 8:23)

B. By final and full deliverance from sin; redemption of the Spirit, (1 Peter 1:23-25)

C. By ushering us, body and spirit, into the heavenly home.


The redemption Jesus provides is not applicable only to a one area of human needs (such as healing.) But this redemption deals with every major and minor area like I explained in this sermon.
