Your ‘set free the oppressed’ mission

Jesus died for our sins to do more than give us eternal life after this life. Galatians 1:4 says he gave his life for our sins in order to set us free from the evil world we live in, “just as God our Father planned.”

Jesus said he came to proclaim good news to the poor, to proclaim freedom for prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free. (Luke 4:18) This is the one who said, “As the Father has sent me, so I am sending you.” (John 20:21)

Has Jesus set you free from the evil world we live in? How are you furthering his “set free the oppressed” mission?
