When someone buys out a business, the business may have gone bankrupt. In fact, the same thing happened when Jesus met us in the market place of sin and death. We were bankrupt. He alone is able because He loved us enough, to buy us out of the eternal mess we were in. He alone has the power and strength to convert bankrupt lives into temples of the living God.
Colossians 1:13-14 (NASB)
For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,
in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
