The 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, to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called mighty oaks, a planting of the LORD for the display of his splendor.
If your heart has been broken, Jesus came to heal you.
If you’re a slave to sin, Jesus came to rescue you.
If you feel like you’re wandering in the darkness, Jesus came to guide you.
If you’re overwhelmed by sadness, Jesus came to bring you a smile.
If you seem to be stuck in poverty, Jesus came to provide for your every need.
If you can’t imagine the possibility of hope, Jesus came to give you a brand new future.
And because Jesus came, let your life be a monument to His glory.
