' “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me (the Messiah), Because He has anointed Me to preach the good news to the poor. He has sent Me to announce release (pardon, forgiveness) to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed (downtrodden, bruised, crushed by tragedy), to proclaim the favourable year of the Lord [the day when salvation and the favour of God abound greatly].” ' Luke 4:18-19
Grace and peace to you from God the Father and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Welcome to the vault, hope you had good weekend and rested :). My weekend was great!
WOW it is the LAST MONDAY of September!
It is good to give thanks to the LORD and to sing priases to the Name of the LORD Most High. To declare His loving Kindness in the morning and His Faithfulness every night. Praise be to the LORD
My weekend: It was packed from Friday; night out with the women in my connect group. Resting on Saturday morning for a late walk with a friend and sharing what it means to walk with Jesus. This has made me think… Why do I follow Christ Jesus my Lord, well the truth is Jesus choose me so I can follow Him? What is my perspective of God, Is God my Genie that will answer my wishes? What if He doesn’t? We talked about our faith, deep conversation….
On Sunday after church, as I took at glance at Ezekiel 34: It is always comforting to know that God has called us and He is also the Good Shepherd who calls and will search for His sheep and also seek us out.
On Sunday in Church, we continue to look at the Book of Luke: today we looked at Luke 4:14-30
One of the things among everything that she touched on was to be present – in the proximity of the poor.
And touching on the fact that the people were filled with wrath at Jesus in verse twenty-eight after Jesus finished reading the scroll from Isaiah (Luke 4:18-19)
Because He had come to change the views of Jews It was no longer just the Jews but also the Gentiles This is good news for us Today, I understand the scriptures…
The scripture was fulfilled because Jesus did not come just for the Jews but for all
To set everyone free.. What God promised to Abraham to bless the nation that was now fulfilled.
The Son of David The Son of Abraham JESUS CHRIST God with us Has come to set us free
We have the same spirit that raised the Lord Jesus Christ from the dead now dwells in us
The Bible shows us people that no one looks at but GOD sees and looks at everyone. No one hides from God, even if you think you are!
The Spirit of the Lord is upon us It never ceases to amaze me That the Son of Man has power The Son of God is with us always It is in Him that we have power to raise the dead In His Name the broken hearted are healed In His Name the captives are set free In His Name, Jesus shows us that everyone is welcome That never ceases to amaze me as I look in awe and wonder
The Good and True Shepherd:
We give thanks to the Good Shepherd Truly God is good to us all To such that are pure in heart What a One of a Kind Shepherd we serve There is no other Shepherd like our God That understands what it means to be truly human To face the temptation and to overcome with Joy A Shepherd that is alive and our Creator A Shepherd that seeks out His flocks A Shepherd that saves the flocks in all seasons Who laid His life for the sheep Who walks in the darkness to find the sheep Who brings the light into the world Oh what a mighty God we serve That causes showers of blessings To rain down in due seasons The trees of the field to bear their fruits The earth to increase in its season Yes, A Good Good Shepherd That has broken the bands of yoke and delivered us from the hands of the enemy So I will not be afraid to walk when the darkness comes For He is the light and we are His people Be assured throughout the week We are chosen, we are His people To be Holy and blameless before Him in Love
