Let The Redeemed OF The Lord Say So!

Salvation is a FREE gift to us from God through his Grace, and Mercy. We can’t earn it, no matter what we do. "It is by grace that we are been saved, through faith—and this is not by our works, it is the gift of God to prevent us from boasting" (Ephesians 2:8-9).

The word of God said that we were created for good works (Ephesians 2:10), but good works cannot save us. Paul says, if salvation could be achieved by law-keeping, then Christ died for nothing (Galatians 2:21).

Grace is the heart of the gospel: We are saved by God’s gift, not by our works. The gospel is "the message of his grace" (Acts 14:3; 20:24). "It is through the grace of our Lord Jesus that we are saved" (Acts 15:11). "We are justified freely by his grace through the redemption that came by Christ Jesus" (Romans 3:24).

We would be hopelessly in sin and condemnation, except for grace. Grace does not give us permission to sin, but grace is given to us when we sin (Romans 6:15; 1 John 1:9). Therefore, whatever good works we do, we should thank God for doing them in us (Galatians 2:20; Philippians 2:13).

God "has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace" (2 Timothy 1:9). Also, "He saved us, not because of righteous things that we had done, but because of his mercy" (Titus 3:5).

Our salvation depends on what Christ has done. If you are redeemed you have a testimony to give. You can speak about the "goodness and mercy of the Lord." "Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So" (Ps. 107:2).




What is the purpose of living as Salt and Light in the world if we don't share our faith? "Let the Redeemed of the Lord Say So" (Ps. 107:2). We are the Redeemed and our "Say So" is our testimony of thankfulness to the Lord. It's time for the Redeemed of the Lord Rise up and "Say So!"
