Redeemed By His Blood

I read that Abraham Lincoln, who hated slavery, was in the slave market one day. He saw a beautiful young slave girl being auctioned off to lecherous men bidding on her to make her their dirty plaything. Abraham Lincoln began to bid for this girl.

One man would bid, and he’d offer a counter-bid. Finally, she was sold to Abraham Lincoln. She lifted those beautiful sad eyes to him, not knowing who he was. He took the certificate of sale and handed it to her and said, “You‘re free.”

She said, “What do you mean, free?”
He said, “You are free.”
She said, “Free to do what I want to do?”
He said, “Yes.”
She said, “Free to say what I want to say?”
He said, “Yes.”
“Free to go where I want to go?”
He said, “Yes.”
She said, “Then I am going with you.”

That’s the way I am with Jesus. He redeemed me and made me free. His precious blood has redeemed me. Romans 5:18 says, “Therefore, as through one man’s offense judgment came to all men, resulting in condemnation, even so through one Man’s righteous act, the free gift came to all men, resulting in justification of life.”
