16 And He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath, and stood up to read. 17 And the [e]book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written,
18 “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me,
Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor.
He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives,
And recovery of sight to the blind,
To set free those who are oppressed,
19 To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.”
The gospel isn’t an esoteric belief in a doctrine. Neither it is saying a magic prayer. It is in our actions. Are we healers and builders or are we destroyers? Are we content with the status quo or will we stand against injustice? Will we comfortably fill our pews when there are those that cannot fill their stomachs?
