Sometimes I think we have this attitude toward the issue of Human Trafficking. The problem is so bad what difference can we possibly make? We think this issue to too big and runs too deep. We say, well it's not affecting me personally. We think that there will always be a demand for sex, and a hunger for power and money. How could possibly eliminate this issue?
But we need to change our mindset from "I can't" to "How Can I?"
If we can't envision the world without Human Trafficking then how can we ever expect it?
We are called to reach out to the lost, the hurting and the broken. We are called to have compassion for them.
We can learn from Mary's example in John 12 where she uses an expensive perfume to anoint Jesus. The story takes place 1 week before Jesus would die on the cross. But Mary, knowing the End was near for Jesus did not despair and give up. She chooses to use this time to pour out her heart to bless Jesus. She demonstrated apocalyptic compassion.
Isaiah 58:10 tells us that if we spend ourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed, then our light will rise in the darkness, and our night will become like the noonday.
Part of the reason these movies are so popular is that there is always a heroic restoration. There is someone or some group who steps in to save the day. To make things right. To offer a new beginning.
We need to declare that this is the End Times for Human Trafficking!
We can show them that they do!
We can reveal God's power to a hurting world.
We can give them A New Beginning
