Nelson Mandela fought for freedom from oppression. He went to jail because he wanted freedom for his people. Unlike freedom from oppression, freedom from sin cost much more. Jesus died to save his people – the people who had rejected, despised and killed him.
Isaiah 53 tells us about how Jesus poured out his life for us and bore our sins so that we could be free. Even though it was many years ago, let’s keep remembering the suffering that Jesus went through for us. Praise Christ the saviour, for making us free from our sins!
