The message of Jesus

Good morning

Luke Chapter 4 verses 16 to 19 say this:

“So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read. And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the broken-hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.”

The Sabbath is so significant that Jesus ministry formally began on a Sabbath and ended on a preparation day just before another Sabbath (John 19:31)! We see Him open His ministry in Luke 4:16-19, where He gives His mission statement. By quoting Isaiah 61:1-2 in His inaugural sermon, Jesus identifies His mission as setting people free from bondage. He specifically mentions freeing the poor (weak, without power), broken-hearted, captive, blind, and oppressed.

A great mission that was 100% delivered and the relevance of what Jesus can do for anyone who comes to him today is still as powerful. Providing acceptance, purpose, answers, forgiveness and so much more….. Including hope!

If you have not considered the Christian message and what it offers then I do recommend it.
