Christ Redeemed Us
Galatians 4:4-5
But when the fullness of the time was come, God sent forth his Son, made of a woman, made under the law,…

A gentleman was once passing through the auction mart of a Southern Slave State, when he noticed the tears of a little girl who was just going to be put up for sale. The other slaves of the same group did not seem to care about it, while each knock of the hammer made her shake. The kind man stopped to inquire why she alone wept. He was told that the others were used to such things, and might be glad of a change from hard, harsh homes, but that she had been brought up with much care by a good owner, and she was terrified to think who might buy her. The stranger asked her price. It was a great sum, but he paid it down. The tears fell fast on the signed parchment which her deliverer brought to prove to her her freedom. She only looked at him with fear. She had been born a slave and knew not what freedom meant. When the gentleman was gone, it began to dawn upon her what her freedom was. With the first breath she said, "I will follow him! I will follow him! I will serve him all my days," and when reasoned with against it, she only cried, "He redeemed me! He redeemed me! He redeemed me!" And so let it be with you. Serve Jesus as sinners bought back with blood, and when men notice the way you serve Him — the joy that is in your looks — the love that is in your tone, the freedom of your service, have one answer to give them: "HE REDEEMED ME!"
