11.14: We are No Longer Slaves to Sin Because of the Redemption of Jesus

When I wrote my novel, Deo Volente: God Willing, I did a lot of research on slavery in the Roman Empire. Slaves at that time were mostly people captured from all the lands the Romans conquered. What’s different from first century slavery than slavery in early American history and the human trafficking slave trade that goes on now, is that a slave could be freed if one paid a sum of money for the person. That’s called redemption. They were redeemed for usually 500 denarii. A denarius was a day’s wages. So, someone had to work 500 days to redeem a slave.

What Jesus Did for You and Me

Paul explains it very nicely in the Book of Romans

If you want to reap all the benefits of salvation including the 1-way, non-stop ticket to Heaven then…

Believe. Repent. Be Baptized. Receive the Holy Spirit.

Pray this prayer humbly and wholeheartedly…

“Dear Lord Jesus, I know I am a sinner. I believe You died for my sins. Please forgive me. Right now, I turn from my sins and open the door of my heart and my life to you. I confess You as my personal Lord and Savior. I surrender my whole life to you and I will follow you for the rest of my life. Thank You, Jesus, for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

Jesus is coming back soon! Are you ready?
