The death of Christ is the means of a sinner's redemption.

Only the Lord Jesus can redeem you

John 14:23 Jesus replied, ‘Anyone who loves me will obey my teaching. My Father will love them, and we will come to them and make our home with them. 24 Anyone who does not love me will not obey my teaching. These words you hear are not my own; they belong to the Father who sent me.'

Redemption

(a) recovered, freed, rescued, and brought back. (h) To release on receipt of a ransom. Thus, deliverance from the bondage, power and penalty of sin into a life of liberty. (The death of Christ is the means of redemption.)!
