When Jesus looks at people, He doesn’t just see flesh and blood. He doesn’t see black faces, white faces, red faces, yellow faces. He sees people who are scattered without direction in their life.
Once you see people the way Jesus does, you’ll never be able to look at another person the same way. You’ll see them differently. You’re not going to be able to stand in the streets of your city and watch the crowds go by and see what you saw before. You’re going to see people who need direction. People who need Jesus.
The Spirit of the Lord GOD is on Me, because the LORD has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives and freedom to the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favour…
Jesus expects us to preach the Gospel to the poor, to heal the broken-hearted, and to set at liberty those that are bruised. He wants to co-labour with us to help this world come back from the grip of every evil force by which it has been controlled. God wants every PERSON to be saved, and who does He share that responsibility with? YOU.
Praise God every sunset celebrates a day closer to His return… but what’s more sobering is the fact that every sunset means the time to win our city for Jesus is slowly running out!
