Through an imaginary story of two boys, Emanuel brings out the freeing power of confession. Although repentance and confession are sometimes thought of in a negative light, they become precious once we realize the freedom they bring. Sin that is not repented of – and quite often, sin that is not confessed – gives the enemy a foothold in your life. Embrace repentance and confession – it is the way to finding freedom.

More specifically, we are called to pray for all who are in authority, and to ask for life for brothers whom we find sinning a sin that is not unto death. We may even find, as Job did, that God changes our own circumstances when we pray for others.

Brother Aaron spends some time reminiscing about his own godly mother, grandmother, and wife. He also takes time to speak of Jochebed, Moses’ mother, and the influence she must have had on her son in the few short years he lived with her, before being taken to the princess’ palace.

For an answer, Brother Abner looks at the teachings of Jesus. Doing God’s will requires more than simply doing certain things. It requires knowing God and believing in His Son.

Jesus was a victim in our place, dying as the sacrifice instead of us. Then God gave Him the victory and dominion, over death, the grave, and Satan. No matter what people do to us, or what circumstances we find ourselves in – including government restrictions during a pandemic – we need not live as victims! As Pastor Huang Lei stated it, “Everything presents an opportunity to glorify God.”
