The Spirit of the Lord is on Me, because He has anointed Me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim freedom to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free the oppressed, – Luke 4:18
Jesus came to preach good news. He didn’t have a message of defeat and discouragement, rather He preached good news. What was this good news that He preached? It was a message of freedom.
He told those who were captive they could be free. He taught that whatever had been holding you back was now removed because of what He was going to do on the cross.
This is good news. This means that no matter what you’re facing, Jesus has a message of freedom for you. If you are discouraged, Jesus has your answer. If you’re fearful, Jesus has what you need. If you struggle with low self-esteem, Jesus tells you that you have worth. Whatever you struggle with, Jesus is your freedom.
This is the good news of the gospel. It’s that Jesus is the answer to what you’re searching for. He’s the answer to your problems, and if you’ll let Him into your life, He’ll be the peace and solution for anything you face.
