Kinsman Redeemer

“Spread the corner of your garment over your handmaid; for you are a redeeming kinsman.” Ruth 3:9 


How could it be,

my Kinsman Redeemer,

Holy Son of God;

That you left the splendors of heaven,

to lay down your life, 

and call me your child? 

How could it be,

that you left your

royal throne in heaven

and pierced through the

darkness of this cold world

and came in the form of a babe

on that night so long ago?

Eternal God who spoke

the world into being –

How could it be that

you stooped down to my level

with eyes of love and said,

“My child I love you,

and it was for you I died!”

How could it be most

precious Passover

Lamb of God,

that your blood was

spilled out to cover my sins,

redeeming and restoring me

back to fellowship with God? 

How could it be that

death and hell

could not hold you,

that you would be raised,

ascend back to heaven,

sit down at your Father’s side

and live to make intercession for me?

And in my heart, this Truth whispers;

Love’s Full Redemption Price was paid in full

through the Grace that touched my life,

by my loving Kinsman Redeemer!

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have everlasting life. John 3:16
