Day Forty-Four – הַיּוֹם אַרְבָּעָה וְאָרְבָּעִים לָעֹמֶר
For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Messiah Yeshua, who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time.
Be diligent to present yourself approved to God as a workman who does not need to be ashamed, accurately handling the word of truth.
…looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Messiah Yeshua, 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.

“He Himself paid the price to redeem us”
If you have received the Messiah by the grace of God through faith, you have done so because He paid the price. All those who have not yet received Him are in debt with their life. The wages of sin is death and those who do not find redemption through the Son will not find it anywhere else. We seek remedies in this life for all sorts of aches and pains. Our deepest needs and the slavery to sin can only find their payment in Yeshua. This has been true for every sinner from Adam and Eve until the ends of the age. Have you received Yeshua as Messiah? Have your sins been forgiven by His payment?
• How do I know I am forgiven? How real is that to me? If I fail to understand the fullness of my forgiveness my ability to love will be stunted. How can I appreciate God’s forgiveness more fully today?
• How would you explain receiving the Messiah to someone who has yet to believe?
• Read Col 2:6, 7 again together as a group. Discuss things that we do after we receive the Messiah. Make a list and discuss how these things are worked out in everyday living.
