Some three million Christians turned out for an enormous “March for Jesus” in the Brazillian city of São Paulo last week.
President Jair Bolsenaro was in attendance at the vast religious gathering, which was held to give people an opportunity to pray and worship the Lord in the public square.
Every year, the March adopts a spiritual theme; this year, the theme was “The Rescuer,” based out of 1 Timothy 2:5-6, which reads:
“For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people. This has now been witnessed to at the proper time.”
“These themes are a reference of what Christ represents for us,” the organizers noted in comments cited by Evangelical Focus. “He rescued us from the empire of darkness and carried us into His mighty light. It is for Him that we march.”
The March’s president, Estevam Hernandes, kicked off proceedings outside a city centre metro station, by delivering a powerful public prayer.
“We cry out for Brazil, for the families, for the end of corruption, for the afflicted hearts, our country belongs to Jesus Christ,” he bellowed over the sprawling crowds. “To Him all honor, glory, power and majesty. As it says in Psalms 33: ‘Happy is the nation whose God is the Lord.’”

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
