O Holy Night

My favorite Christmas song of all time is O Holy Night.  One of the verses talks about the mission that Christ had in coming to earth. 

      “Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother; and in His name,   all  oppression shall cease.”

I shared this during our Sunday School Anniversary/Christmas program, how we may as the churched or unchurched population  be enslaved to things.  Whether its food, pornography, alcohol,  or our selfishness, we can be under bondage to these things.  Christ has come not that we be oppressed, but be free.  If Christ sets us free, we are free indeed, according to the Word.  You can read from the prophecy in Isaiah 61, Christ has come to bind up the brokenhearted (can i get a witness in here?), release  the captive, comfort the ones who mourn.

I could not help but think of my LWR babies who also are under bondage through sexual slavery.  Everyone of them needs to know that Christ loves them and died for them, and has come to set the captive free.  So many times they are psychologically tormented to believe that no one can release them and no one will accept them if they run away from the stronghold of the pimp.  Please commit to praying for these dear children and young people.  They can be set free, physically and spiritually.  Pray for the part that LWR will play also in these things.  God has promised he will teach and instruct us in LWR’s part to rescue and restore lives out of oppression into freedom.
