Redemption in Two Parts

The redemption of the soul happens now, in this life.  The redemption of the body is still to come; that will be our salvation.

The Redemption of the Soul Happens Now

Ephesians 1:7 PJV
7. [Jesus Christ] in whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the richness of His grace.

Colossians 1:14 PJV
14. [God’s beloved Son] in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.

1Peter 1:18–19 PJV
18. You were not redeemed from your worthless way of life, received by tradition from your fathers, with corruptible things such as silver or gold,
19. but with the precious blood of Christ, as of an unblemished and spotless lamb.

The Redemption of the Body Will Be Our Salvation

Romans 8:23–25 PJV
23. We who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, also groan within ourselves, eagerly awaiting the adoption, the redemption of our body.
24. For we are saved by hope, but hope that is seen is not hope, for what someone sees, why does he still hope for it?
25. But if we hope for that which we do not see, then with patience we eagerly wait for it.

Ephesians 4:30 PJV
30. Do not grieve the holy Spirit of God, by which you were sealed until the day of redemption.
