And so it goes on,the Church of Christ continues to suffer, I have just read how a dear brother in Christ has died. His name was Peng Ming ,he lived in China and was serving a life sentence on spurious charges of engaging in terrorism In prison he suffered beatings ,and was denied medical treatment, many have been praying for him that he would be set free. Well now he truly is free, basking in the presence of his Saviour. Free at last, in this world many cry out for freedom, and yet people are still prisoners so many
wrong things rules their lives. Yes ,they are not in prison, but they are prisoners, and unless they turn to the only one who can set them free, they will remain prisoners. One day Jesus Stood up in His local synagogue , he was handed the scroll of the prophet Isaiah, and He read,'' The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed''[61 v1-2 ]Jesus did come to forgive sin, but also to set people free, These are tremendous words of hope for us all, we can be set free, let me repeat this, we can be set free, by Jesus.
Dear Lord Jesus we praise you forgive us, and free us from any sin Amen.
