Comfort & Redemption

The Holy Spirit is the deposit of our redemption. God will come back to redeem us and is redeeming us every day by the Holy Spirit that He has placed inside each one of us. The Holy Spirit is our comforter, and we take comfort in the knowledge that God has not left us and that we are in a continual position of redemption; actively becoming more like Christ every day.
Redemption: deliverance, rescue, deliverance from sin, atonement for guilt and repurchase.
Ephesians 1: 13 -14; And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession-to the praise of his glory. (NIV)
Ephesians 1:13-14; And now you also have heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. The Spirit is God's guarantee that he will give us everything he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. This is just one more reason for us to praise our glorious God. (NLT)
