… When we understand the story of redemption, the gospel is the power of God for salvation. Individuals who have been freed from captivity can walk in God’s ways — and teach others to walk in his ways as well. If we fail to tell the true story of redemption, our “two-chapter” gospel is powerless.

People suffering in slavery want more than promises of a “happily ever afterlife.” They deserve more than that. Happily, God offers more.
