Sometimes I think these words from Jesus, and Isaiah, are overused and misapplied.
And the book of the prophet Isaiah was handed to Him. And He opened the book and found the place where it was written, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set free those who are oppressed, To proclaim the favorable year of the Lord.” (Luke 4:17-19 NASB)
But today I think it’s important to remember that as Jesus started his mission he mentioned releasing the captives. Today is Shine a Light on Slavery Day. And like last year the Daily Buffet stands with the End It Movement to remind everyone of the many people in our world who are still in slavery. It’s way too many people who are still in slavery.
