However, we will start by looking at the context in which the prophet wrote these verses and reflect how these verses impact our lives based on the fact that Jesus himself quoted these verses in the book of Luke 4:18.
- At the start of the year it is important to reaffirm who we are and what our goals are that we will attempt to achieve. Jesus does this in Luke 4 by quoting these verses out of Isaiah . His declaration clearly states the following:-
- God's spirit is upon Him to perform a task.
- Each person who has God's Spirit should do the following tasks:-
- Preach the Good News to the poor (Poor means anyone who does not have a relationship with Him)
- Bind up the brokenhearted
- Liberty for the captives
- Liberation for the prisoners
- Comfort for the hurting and discouraged
- Those who do this will be considered righteous.
- The goal is for God to get the Glory.
