The Sanctuary Before the Front Lines
October 17, 2012
Bethany Hoang is the director of the IJM Institute for Biblical Justice, where she develops biblical justice theology with global Christian leaders.
As each individual entered the room for International Justice Mission’s Global Prayer Gathering, their eyes were filled with images chronicling the reality of modern-day slaves enduring brutal labor under the violence of a slave master.
The room was dark and the images darker. And then, without a sound, words began to appear on the screen.
Blessings abound wherever He reigns;
All prisoners leap to lose their chains;
The weary find eternal rest,
And those who suffer want are blessed.
