“Truly He taught us to love one another. His law is love and His gospel is peace. Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother and in His name all oppression shall cease.”
Jesus’ incarnation was the realization of the hope that our weary world longed for. Jesus, the beloved Son of God, became man to bring justice in the world; to reconcile us to Himself through His death and resurrection; to bring wholeness and healing everywhere there is brokenness.
This season, spend time savoring and meditating on the promises He declared in such scriptures as Is. 9:1-7, Is. 42, Is. 60, and Is. 61, that were realized in Christ. Savor hymns like O Holy Night. Savor Him. Let it fill you with hope of the reality of the Light that has come, that is relentlessly reaching into every dark place to bring life and justice, and that no place is too big or small. Pray for those impacted by human trafficking, such as victims, perpetrators, and communities, with confidence in His persistent love and life up every burden in your life in the light of His extravagant grace. Rest in His love and rejoice in Him.
