Title: God liberates the captives
Text verse: Psalm 146: 7b–8
The Lord gives freedom to the prisoners. The Lord opens the eyes of the blind; the Lord raises those who are bowed down; the Lord loves the righteous.
God liberates, heals, and comforts.
- Christ liberates all those from sin who believe in Him and follow Him. This applies to the living and the dead in equal measure.
- The Spirit teaches us to recognize God’s activity of salvation, the suffering of our neighbour, and our own weaknesses.
- We are called upon to comfort those who are oppressed and bowed down.
