About Let Series
LET. Wielded by the Holy Spirit, this tiny word had a huge impact on Martha’s life, and the adventure can be yours, too, if you just LET God be GOD.
1 Peter 1:18-19 AMPC
You must know (recognize) that you were redeemed (ransomed) from the useless (fruitless) way of living inherited by tradition from [your] forefathers, not with corruptible things [such as] silver and gold, but [you were purchased] with the precious blood of Christ (the Messiah), like that of a [sacrificial] lamb without blemish or spot.
That “you were redeemed” means that a ransom was paid for your freedom from captivity.
A Double Ransom Paid
This is an amazing passage as it shows that not only were you transferred from Satan’s kingdom of darkness, “you were purchased.” You were purchased and severed from the inherited sins and useless ways of the forefathers.
Jesus paid a double ransom, the life in His precious Blood poured out, to give you and me freedom from every hindrance.
