In His Name, All Oppression Shall Cease

Here’s a rousing version of O Holy Night. My favorite verse is the last.

Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is peace
Chains shall He break for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease

Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we,
Let all within us praise His holy name.

Fall on your knees
Oh hear the angel voices
Oh night divine
Oh night when Christ was born
Oh night divine
Oh night divine

In the forgiveness of sins through Jesus Christ, born 2000 years ago in that stable in Bethlehem, we can see  oppression cease; the oppression of a conscience held captive to sin, the oppression of fear about being right with God, the oppression of an accusing adversary who throws our sins in our faces. Our Savior breaks those chains for all who believe and by faith look to Him for salvation.

There is also healing from oppression of things in our lives that perpetually try to bring us down. Anyone who has suffered the ongoing pain of depression and anxiety knows the bondage that it is. The gift of our Savior is the most important gift we can ever receive, because in His name all oppression shall cease. Where Jesus is, there is love.
