ONLY THE LORD CAN . . .
Only the Lord can truly set free those who are enslaved by sin and their own addictions to their over-desires for more, even though more never satisfies. “The Lord frees the prisoners.”
Only the Lord can truly open the eyes of the spiritually blind, who wonder aimlessly in this sin-darkened world without purpose or meaning. Only the Lord can open their eyes to see the narrow path that leads to salvation through Jesus. “The Lord opens the eyes of the blind.”
Only the Lord can truly lift up those who are weighed down by the burdens of this life and the sufferings of this world. Only the Lord can invite us saying, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt. 11:28). “The Lord lifts up those who are weighed down.”
PRAYER: Dear Father, move in the lives of the ones to whom You are calling us to share the gospel. For only You can set them free, open their eyes and give them rest. Prepare their hearts to receive the gospel. Give us boldness to share it with them. In Jesus’ name, amen.
