“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, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” Luke 4:18-19 (NIV)
When you get exciting news, you want to tell everyone about it. You want to share your excitement with anyone who is willing to listen. You look for ways to fit it into any conversation. The excitement is just too much to keep to yourself.
As a child of God, we have the best news ever!!! We have the answer to all of life’s problems – a relationship with God. He can heal their brokenness, set them free, heal them and grant them favor. Your assignment is to tell those in need the good news. Accept your assignment!
God, thank you that I learned the good news. Show me who I need to share the good news with today. Give me the words so speak and the boldness to speak them. In Jesus name. Amen.
