Psalm 146:7 — He gives justice to the oppressed and food to the hungry. The Lord frees the prisoners.

With a word, God can break walls of stone and bars of iron. The pages of scripture are full of stories of freedom coming to the captive; from individuals like Joseph, Jeremiah and Peter to whole nations like Israel, enslaved in Egypt…all pointing to a greater freedom for all of mankind that would be won on the cross. Jesus declared that He had come “to proclaim freedom for the prisoners” (Luke 4:18), and He did — freedom from physical and mental suffering, freedom from fear and loneliness, freedom from sin and shame, and even freedom from death itself. It’s a freedom we desperately need.



We’re about two things: Loving God, and Loving People
