He Came to Free Us
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.” (Luke 4:18 NLT)
No doctor can heal a broken heart. He or she may be able to do other things for your heart, but a doctor can’t get to the source of your emotional problem. Only Jesus can heal a heart that has been broken.
Jesus said, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, for he has anointed me to bring Good News to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free” (Luke 4:18 NLT).
Here are Jesus’ words in Luke 4:18 in the New King James Version: “He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted.” Jesus came to heal brokenhearted people. Maybe your heart breaks from the loss of a loved one, the loss of a relationship, or perhaps constant failures. Maybe your family has let you down and it seems like no one cares. Let Jesus Christ heal your broken heart.
He came to “proclaim that captives will be released, that the blind will see, that the oppressed will be set free.” Are you crushed by life? Jesus can bring deliverance, but you need to want it. He came to free us—if we will go to Him, ask Him to forgive our sin, turn from it, and begin to follow Him.
If you have never done that, then why don’t you do it today?
The same Jesus who walked this earth and experienced the limitations of humanity loves you. The same Jesus who died on the cross, took the sin of the world upon Himself, and rose from the dead wants to forgive your sin.
Now is the time to take God’s lifeline. The Bible tells us, “There is salvation in no one else! God has given no other name under heaven by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12 NLT). Now is the time to find God’s forgiveness and His plan for your life.
