Sent to Heal

Isaiah 61:1 1 The Spirit of the Lord God is on Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to bring good news to the poor.  He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners; (NIV)

 Luke 4:18-19 18 The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor.  He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind,
to set free the oppressed, 19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. (NIV)

 Jesus used scripture from the prophetic writes to state what He would be doing as He walked this earth.  All we need do is read the accounts of His actions and we can see how the prophecy above was fulfilled.   It is still being fulfilled.  We have been free from the captivity of sin.  We are in the process of our spiritual eyes being opened.  We are no longer oppressed under the tyranny of Satan and evil.  These are in the spiritual realm.  We also see these blessing in the physical realm.  As Jesus was sent to do these things by His Father, we believers and followers are also being sent by our Father to do the same things.  Our question is are we doing them or are we spreading discord and discontentment by our own complaints, self-seeking and pride? Let us examine ourselves in the light of the example of Jesus.
