Ransom


RANSOM

The word “ransom” means a price demanded, or the redeemer’s payment to redeem a slave or a captive. By the fall of the first parents, humans became captives of the Devil like a child born to slave parents. We are under condemnation (Eph 2:3; Rom 3:9-20; 3:23; 1 Jn 5:19) and curse (Gal 3:10). A slave child cannot rescue himself regardless of how much he tries. So, God came among us to rescue us. Jesus, who is not a slave of the Devil or sin, suffered and died for us giving his life as a ransom for our liberation from eternal damnation.
