418 What’s that about??

by Colin Dexter

Luke Chapter 4 Verse 18      Luke 4:18 NIV

JESUS SAID.     18 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,     because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners  and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free,

Jesus came to preach & proclaim good news to the all but especially to the “poor in spirit”- those who recognised their spiritual poverty.  Jesus sent his disciples to do the same & as his disciples of today we continue to preach & proclaim the good news message that God through the person of His Spirit,  wants a daily relationship with us and to set us free from the things that drag us down in this life.

The disciples were sent to proclaim with  power & authority, told to keep it simple and to a large extent they were the message, with respect to how they spoke, lived, acted & lived out the message of Jesus.  When God comes into our lives and we welcome Him, he can change us and that life change is the example to others of what God can do in us.
