When God’s people were enslaved in Egypt, He rescued them and brought them out. Exodus records His heart for His captive people:
“Then the Lord said, “I have surely seen the affliction of my people who are in Egypt and have heard their cry because of their taskmasters. I know their sufferings, and I have come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians and to bring them up out of that land to a good and broad land…”
THIS IS OUR GOD. He hears the cries of the afflicted and oppressed and he knows their sufferings and he comes down to deliver us all from our slavery. He came through Jesus and now Jesus works through us.
The work of One Saved is two-fold, we are working for the freedom of actual slaves and we are working to also free them from the all-consuming slavery to sin and death that we all are born into.
