Redeemed Servants

4 I sought the LORD, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.

5 Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.

6 This poor man called, and the LORD heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.

7 The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.

8 Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.

9 Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing.

22 The LORD redeems his servants;
no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him.
Psalm 34:4-9 & 22, New International Version

Redeemed Servants

Much of the life of a servant depends upon the master he serves. With a cruel master comes a miserable life, but with a good master, the servant is truly blessed. As redeemed servants of God, what kind of a life can we expect?

One of the best answers to this question comes from Psalm 34. Look at the blessings recorded in the verses shown above for the redeemed servants of the Lord.

*Our Master answers us and delivers us from all of our fears.
*Our faces are radiant when we look to our Master, and we are never ashamed.
*Our Master hears our cries and delivers us from all of our troubles.
*Our Master sends his angel to watch over us and deliver us from trouble.
*Our Master is good and those who take refuge in Him are blessed.
*The redeemed servants of the Lord lack nothing.
*No one who takes refuge in the Master will ever be condemned.

I do not know about you, but just reading through this Bible passage puts a spring in my step and a song in my heart!

As redeemed servants of the Lord, let us rejoice in the kind Master who has redeemed us from condemnation, watches over us constantly, and blesses us with all good things.

Oh, what a Savior we have!

God Bless You,
