Jesus’ mission is foreshadowed in Isaiah 61:1-3. Jesus came to show the way to true freedom and to be the way to true freedom. He is the Good News. He is the One who binds up our broken hearts. He has the authority to forgive our sins because of His sacrifice on our behalf. He has the power to set us free from the real and imagined prisons that hold us captive. He sets us free — truly! — and He sends us with the same mission: to help people find true freedom.
Jesus, thank you for giving yourself as a sacrifice for our sin. Thank you for the gift of forgiveness and eternal life. Lord, set us free from the things that have mastered us. Be our only Master and set us truly free in you. Amen.
