The Way of Jesus: The Platform

Last night we studied Luke 4.14-44 and Jesus’ declaration of His mission (His platform as a leader, if you will), including His first trip to actually live it out. Here’s what He said…

And the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor." And he rolled up the scroll and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all in the synagogue were fixed on him. And he began to say to them, "Today this Scripture has been fulfilled in your hearing." (Luke 4.17-21)
As Jesus’ disciples, what are some tangible ways we can live out His mission in our world? What are you doing? What is God calling you to do?
