Good News

Good News

The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
    because he has anointed me
        to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives
    and recovery of sight to the blind,
        to let the oppressed go free,
 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor. -Luke 4:18-19


Reflect: Prayerfully consider this week: In what areas of life is Jesus ahead of you beckoning you to step forward? Are there places, situations, issues in the world in which you are lagging behind Christ? What is needed for you to take a step forward?

Practice: Have you considered that sharing the gospel or evangelism is all the ways you reach out to help other people? Each and every time you serve another person this week, take time to reflect upon how it is good news.

Practice: In what ways can you begin to more fully show others that your faith is the foundation for the help and kindness you show to others? Try something this week!
