Where He Leads, I Will Follow
March 3-4 – Good News to the Poor
Poverty comes in many different forms. There is economic poverty, which is what most people think of when thinking of poverty. Economic poverty is a prevalent theme in Luke’s gospel. But there is also spiritual and moral poverty – which are harder to see on the surface.
March 10-11 – Freedom for the Prisoner
In the Gospels, we don’t find any instance of Jesus freeing a prisoner. But he did set free people who were held in captivity by Satan. This involved demon possession as well as people who were prisoners of legalism and traditions.
March 17-18 – Sight for the Blind
Jesus showed compassion to people who suffered physically. In a literal sense, he restored sight to several blind people. Today, many people suffer from spiritual blindness and live in spiritual darkness. Jesus is still able to open the eyes of the blind.
March 25-26 – Set the Oppressed Free
There are several reasons why a person might be oppressed. There is the self-inflicted oppression that comes as a result of our sinful choices and habits. But there is also oppression that is put upon us by society because of our skin color or gender. An extended season of challenges and difficulties may also leave us feeling oppressed.
March 31 – April 1 – Year of the Lord’s Favor (Easter)
Easter is God’s declaration that he is for us! We no longer have to live as poor, blind, oppressed prisoners. The resurrection of Jesus proves God’s power to change and transform lives.
