All Life is Redeemable

All Life is Redeemable

I've been hurting for a long time. I've made mistakes, I've done things I'm not proud of, and I've hurt people I love. I've felt like I'm beyond redemption, like I'm too far gone.

But then I read these words from 1 Peter 1:18-19:

For you know that you were redeemed from your empty way of life inherited from your ancestors, not with perishable things like silver or gold, but with the precious blood of Christ, like that of an unblemished and spotless lamb.

These words gave me hope. They reminded me that I am not beyond redemption. That my past does not define me. That I am valuable to God, and that He loves me enough to die for me.

I'm not saying that it's easy to walk in the freedom of redemption. There will be times when I'm tempted to go back to my old ways. There will be times when I feel like I'm not good enough. But I know that I can always come back to these words, and find the strength to keep going.

If you're hurting, if you're feeling like you're beyond redemption, I want you to know that you're not alone. And I want you to know that there is hope. Because all life is redeemable.

How to Live a Redeemed Life

So, how do we live a redeemed life? Here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Remember your worth. You are valuable to God, and He loves you. Don't let your past define you.
  • Confess your sins. If you've done something wrong, don't try to hide it. Confess your sins to God, and ask for His forgiveness.
  • Forgive others. If someone has hurt you, don't let bitterness take root in your heart. Forgive them, and let go of the pain.
  • Trust in God. God is faithful, and He will never leave you or forsake you. Trust Him to lead you through your journey of redemption.

Living a redeemed life is not always easy, but it is possible. With God's help, you can overcome your past and live a life that is full of hope and joy.


God, thank You for Your redemption. Thank You for loving me and forgiving me. Help me to remember my worth, to confess my sins, to forgive others, and to trust in You. I pray that I would live a redeemed life that is full of hope and joy. In Jesus' name, amen.
