Jesus’ mission: Call all people to a new life!
Early in his ministry, Jesus shocks the folks of his home town by declaring his mission. Quoting from the prophet Isaiah, Jesus tells the people in the local synagogue, “The spirit of the Lord is upon me… He has appointed me to bring good news to the poor… and to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”
We can think of these words as Jesus’ purpose on earth. They also should be the foundation of our own purpose in the world, as followers of Jesus. Are they?
