1The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners, (Isaiah 61:1)
Hello friends. I wanted to share these verses from today’s readings because I recently came across them while watching Season 1 of “The Chosen.” In Episode 3, Jesus quotes these verses as He is teaching a group of children that have begun gathering around His home site just before the launch of His ministry. If you have not watched “The Chosen,” do not feel bad. I have heard about it for a few years now and just this week decided to invest the time to see what all the hub-bub is about. It really is an amazing series. It’s refreshing to see someone put in the time and talent to make a show to glorify Jesus and His Chosen.
One of my favorite bands, Shane & Shane, released a new album last week. This is the latest single from that gem. Enjoy.
