18:”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.
19:To proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour.”
Heavenly Father, I stand amazed that You should love me so much that You sent the Lord Jesus to be my Saviour, to be wounded on my account, to die a cruel death on my behalf, and rise again on the third day so that by grace through faith in Him, I have been redeemed from the pit.
He has healed me of my wounds, set me free from slavery to sin, given me a new life in Christ, and I have found my rest in Him. May I live my life in humble dependence upon You, day by day. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
