Jesus returned to Galilee with the power of the Spirit. News about him spread everywhere. He taught in the Jewish meeting places, and everyone praised him. Jesus went back to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and as usual he went to the meeting place on the Sabbath. When he stood up to read from the Scriptures, he was given the book of Isaiah the prophet. He opened it and read, "The Lord's Spirit has come to me, because he has chosen me to tell the good news to the poor. The Lord has sent me to announce freedom for prisoners, to give sight to the blind, to free everyone who suffers, and to say, 'This is the year the Lord has chosen.' "
Luke 4: 14 - 19
The message that Jesus brought to earth was not for the righteous. It was not directed at those who were rich. Jesus came with Good News for those who are poor, sick, suffering, in prison, blind or otherwise impaired!
If your life is trouble free, and you are happy and content in this world, it is easy for you to feel no need for the Savior! Jesus, Himself said that He did not come for the righteous, but for sinners!
So if you have been trying to proclaim the message of Jesus to those who feel no pain in living, you may have found that there is little interest. Until a man or woman feels the insufficiency of just being a human being, he or she will not likely seek to know the Savior who came for those who could not overcome on their own!
And if you are one who is suffering, the News of Jesus is Good, it is all Good! Jesus is the answer to your every need!
“Lord Jesus, thank You Lord that there is no problem on earth that is too big for You to handle! You are indeed the Lord of lords! May You be praised forever. Amen.”
