Read:As we wrap up this series on social justice, I would like to leave you with this. You are not alone. Not only has God given you his Spirit, he has also given you his church. The oppression and injustice in this world can be overwhelming, and there are times we may feel burnt out, but remember that you are not called to fight this battle alone.Isaiah 61:1 NIV
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners.Examine:
- As you reflect on this past year and the facts that you have learned about trafficking and injustice through this series, how is God calling you to respond?
- It is not your responsibility to right every wrong in this world, but it is important for you to speak out for those that are oppressed. How will you be a voice for those that are oppressed by traffickers?Apply/Action:The National Human Trafficking Hotline is an amazing resource provided by Polaris. Please consider saving the hotline number (1-888-373-7888) on your phone and using it to report tips, request training, and to connect with anti-trafficking services in your area.Pray:Dear Lord, thank you for sending your son to die for me. Thank you for your strength, your love, and your patience. Without You, I would be overcome by this world and its trouble. I pray that you guide me to a place of renewal and that you would lead me to the places and people you want me to serve. Amen.
