The Gospel story begins with the fall of mankind into sin and death and being cast from God’s presence, and God personally coming down to us to rescue us.
The whole idea of God becoming a man in order ,”to seek and to save that which was lost,” has long been a main sticking point for many.
But the story of a parent of a child who was,”lost”, into the sex trade in Argentina gives validation to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The love this parent shows is not unlike the love that God our father has for all of us.
Her name is Susana Trimarco.
Her daughter was taken from her.
She so loved her daughter, Marita, that she would do anything to rescue her. She disguised herself as one of them and went where they are. She rescued many, sadly her daughter is not among the hundreds she has rescued. She has started a campaign that has changed the face of Argentina and sex trafficking in the world, an army of people rising up to set the captives free.
Today, thousands have been set free.Still her daughter is not among them.
In her quest to find her daughter I am reminded of a loving God who became one of us in order to save us.
“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” —which means, “God with us.” (Matthew 1:23)
Sex trafficking is a worldwide problem.
(It is likely that there is no country on Earth that has felt impact this crime.)
So it is with our relationship to God. We are all born lost. We are all in need of saving.
“For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but everlasting life.” John 3:16
Madam, I pray to God in the name of Jesus Christ his Son, that your love is rewarded by the rescue of your daughter who you so love,…in Jesus name. Amen
