The Promise of Freedom

The Promise of Freedom

In the book of Isaiah, we see the promise of freedom; the promise of the Good News that is to come. God has always been so faithful to promise His Good News to those who will believe.

16 Jesus traveled to Nazareth, where he had grown up. On the Sabbath day he went to the synagogue, as he always did, and stood up to read. 17 The book of Isaiah the prophet was given to him. He opened the book and found the place where this is written: 18 “The Lord has put his Spirit in me, because he appointed me to tell the Good News to the poor. He has sent me to tell the captives they are free and to tell the blind that they can see again. God sent me to free those who have been treated unfairly 19 and to announce the time when the Lord will show his kindness.” 20 Jesus closed the book, gave it back to the assistant, and sat down. Everyone in the synagogue was watching Jesus closely. (Luke 4:16-20 NCV)

Father God, how very thankful I am for the Good News! The freedom of living with You and Your ways is what I always want for me and for my family! I do love You. AMEN

Truly I will always have hope. I know that You, my God, do what is right. As I grow older, I will continue to tell about Your good works. Psalm 71

 

The Promise Of Freedom
Isaiah 61:1-3
6-11-15

Scripture:

1 The Lord God has put his Spirit in me, because the Lord has appointed me to tell the good news to the poor. He has sent me to comfort those whose hearts are broken, to tell the captives they are free, and to tell the prisoners they are released. 2 He has sent me to announce the time when the Lord will show his kindness and the time when our God will punish evil people. He has sent me to comfort all those who are sad 3 and to help the sorrowing people of Jerusalem. I will give them a crown to replace their ashes, and the oil of gladness to replace their sorrow, and clothes of praise to replace their spirit of sadness. Then they will be called Trees of Goodness, trees planted by the Lord to show his greatness. (Isaiah 61:1-3 NCV)
