With the release of Blood Ransom, I've tried to expose my readers to some of the injustices that are taking place around the world, but for every person caught in the grips of physical slavery, there is another person caught in the grips of emotional and spiritual slavery. We don't have to be forced to work physically to be in bondage.
Whither it is bondage from addictions, depression, financial debt, or something else, there are people everywhere searching for freedom.
I don't think I would want to write the stories I write if I didn't believe that there was hope. And that hope comes from one person. Jesus Christ who died on the cross.
Jesus said in Luke 4, "...he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recover fo sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."
As many of us look toward Easter weekend as a reminder of Christ’s sacrifice on the cross, lets remember those who remain in both physical, emotional, and spiritual bondage. And pray also for those who have yet to hear about the Lamb of God who triumphed over death for each one of us, and who now sits on the throne.
“And they sang a new song with these words: “You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation.” Revelation 5:9 NLT
