A few weeks ago, the world was shocked by the story of the collapse of a garment factory building in Bangladesh. Over 1,000 died. But amazingly, 17 days after the tragedy, Reshma Begum, a 19 year old seamstress was pulled alive from the wreckage. She was in good condition, but trapped and unable to free herself. She heard the voices of rescue workers and tried everything she could to attract attention. Finally, she was found and rescued. So many times in life, people find themselves trapped, needing outside help. For deliverance. Jesus, explaining His reason for coming into this world said, “The Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” When you and I recognize our spiritual poverty and inability to save ourselves, we can call out to the Lord Jesus who said, “…”if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed. “ If you are in need of moral and spiritual freedom, it is available in the Person of Jesus Christ.
