Fanny Crosby has given many generations of Christians the opportunity to worship our redeemer in her great hymn from 1882, “Redeemed.” The chorus says, “Redeemed – How I love to proclaim it, redeemed by the blood of the lamb … His child, and forever I am.”

The second of the three “R” big salvation words, “redemption,” has some similarities with the first of the three “R” big salvation words, “reconciliation.” It has a number of uses in secular life and, like reconciliation, is not something that non-Christians are aware they need in their relationship with God.

Bob Norris is a former pastor at Meadowbrooke Church and Calvary Chapel in Cheyenne. He has a Master of Theology from Dallas Seminary. He can be reached by email at
