Isaiah 61: 1-2
“1 The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
2 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,”
Christ was sent into the world because God loves the world.
Christ was sent to proclaim the good news that all who believed would have eternal life, not just a select few, but all.
He came into the world to comfort, heal and rescue the least, the last, and the lost; to be the light for all who are bound in sin.
Christ, the Son of God, the Christ child, who was born on a quiet night in Bethlehem, came into this world for you and for me.
May the love of Christ be with you,
Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
