“No man can by any means redeem his brother. Or give to God a ransom for him. For the redemption of his soul is costly.”
It is an amazing thing when someone comes to faith in God. Last night I got to witness my brother in-law give his life to Jesus. His life was redeemed. The ransom for his soul was paid by Jesus long ago, but yesterday he was set free.
My brother in-law was in darkness. He knows his life was full of darkness and demonic presence. He has been hearing about Jesus for years and knew that if he ever decided to become a follower that he would do it completely, not half heartedly. He finally saw that he needed Jesus. So yesterday he prayed a beautiful prayer acknowledging his need to get rid of the darkness in his life and knowing he can’t do it on his own. Jesus filled his life. My brother in-law said he felt something leave. It was the darkness. Jesus has filled his life with light.
