I was teaching a lesson on Harriet Tubman yesterday. In the lesson, it said that Harriet Tubman was a hero because she escaped slavery, but then she decided to go back to help other slaves escape. Harriet Tubman is definitely a hero! She knew freedom and HAD to help others experience that same freedom!
However, I couldn’t help but make the connection to Christianity. We were once slaves to sin! We have freedom in Christ. We cannot let others be slaves to suffer an eternal punishment. We must go free those slaves!
“But thanks be to God, that you who were once slaves of sin have become obedient from the heart to the standard of teaching to which you were committed, and, having been set free from sin, have become slaves of righteousness (Romans 6:17-18).”
