Colossians 1:6 (NLT)
6 This same Good News that came to you is going out all over the world. It is bearing fruit everywhere by changing lives, just as it changed your lives from the day you first heard and understood the truth about God’s wonderful grace.

There is great mercy in hearing the news of the salvation that came through Jesus Christ. It was Christ who commanded us to go out into the world and tell others of His love. The Good news provides the hope waiting in heaven, but also provides for grace and mercy here on earth.

Zack Hunter was a student at Christian Fellowship School in Virginia when he started to raise awareness of slavery that existed in the world. In seventh grade, he along with his church youth group and fellow students raised $8,500 to assist those who had been oppressed. Zach started a program called Loose Change for Loose Chains. He began to educate others about the slavery and oppression that exists in other parts of the world. Now at 16 he is actively speaking to groups, has written a book on the subject and is motivating others to aid in this cause to free those who are bound. Zack’s book Be the Change: Your Guide to Freeing Slaves and Changing the World points out how there is more slavery in the world now than any other point history. Zack has gained support from others such as the Christian music artists like Jon Foreman and Leeland Mooring. Zack is actively trying to spread the love of Christ through his actions around the world. There is Good News in the salvation of Christ. It frees us from the bounds of sin here in this world. And it allows us to free others who are bound in oppression throughout the world. Pray for Zack’s efforts and that he will have an impact on the world.
