My devotional from Beth Moore's book "JESUS, 90 Days With the One and Only" was on redemption, my favorite topic, so I thought I would share some of the Scriptures and thoughts with you..........

"The Word made flesh first entered the temple wrapped in a baby blanket. His earthly parents lifted Him to His Father and, in essence, purchased Him from heaven------for a while-------for a lost world. One day that baby would buy them from earth for the glory of heaven. Wow!"

"For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich." Second Corinthians 8:9

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and wordly desires, and to live sensibly, righteously, and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus, who gave Himself for us to REDEEM us from every lawless deed, and to purify for Himself a people for His own possession, zealous for good deeds." Titus 2:11-14

"The precepts of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes. The fear of the LORD is clean, enduring forever; the judgements of the LORD are true; they are righteous altogether." Psalm 19:8-9
