Slavegirl Set Free
Our Redemption through Christ is much like this story.
There is a story about a man who went down to the slave block to buy a slave girl. As she looked at the rich man bidding on her, she figured he was another rich man going to buy her and then abuse her.
He won the bid, and as he was walking away with his property, he said, "Young lady, you are free."
She said, "What does that mean?"
"It means you are free."
"Does that mean," she said, "that I can say whatever I want to say?"
The gentleman said, " Yes, my dear, you can say whatever you want to say."
"Does that mean," she said, "that I can be whatever I want to be?"
He said, "Yes, you can be whatever you want to be."
"Does that mean that I can go wherever I want to go?"
He said, "Yes, you can go wherever you want to go."
The girl, with tears streaming down her face, said, :Then I will go with you."
