|A pattern of holes brought air to the underground tunnel|
Incredibly, many slaves trusted Christ in the midst of their oppression. How could they do this when some of their harshest mistreatment came from slave owners calling themselves Christian?
The slave’s secret: they didn’t let their circumstances change their view of Christ—they let Christ change their view of their circumstances.
Proverbs 3:5 says "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding."
