"Let lsrael hope in the Lord: for with the lord there is mercy, and with Him is plenteous redemption." There is nothing lacking in the Lord's redeeming blood, it is not weak, anemic nor wasted. So powerful, plenteous, and precious is His effectual, eternal sacrifice in putting away our sin that the all seeing eye of God's justice says, 'their sins and iniquities will I remember no more" (Heb. 10. 17). Let me give you several reasons why our Lord's redemption is plenteous.
(1). Consider the number He redeemed. He has redeemed an elect people out of every kindred, and tongue, and people, and nation. The number of which is described as ten thousand times ten thousand, and thousands of thousands (Rev. 5:9-10).
(2). Consider what of them He has redeemed. Body, soul and spirit, (Ps. 71:23; Ps. 103.4; 1 Cor. 15:49-57).
(3). Consider what they are redeemed from: All sin (I John 1:7); from the curse of the Law (Gal. 3:13); from all condemnation (Rom. 8:1, 32-34); from death (Rev. 1: 18).
