Set Me Free
We live in world where millions are not free. Oppression, slavery, indentured servitude, forced prostitution are horrible realities that happen every single day. As Jesus followers we proclaim that God is a God of freedom; not just theologically speaking—not just freedom from sin, but freedom from oppression and injustice here and now. And he calls us to be about that kingdom work, the work of setting the captives free. As we prepare for our Christmas offering that will go toward the work of freeing child slaves in Haiti may God capture our hearts for the cause of the weak and vulnerable. May we rise up and proclaim with heart and voice, with hands and feet, with actions and resources that our God is a God of freedom.
