Jesus Is The Good News

 

Jesus came preaching the Gospel.The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, Luke 4:18 (KJV) This is a prophecy of Isaiah 61:1. His words were good news of great joy. It was good news to the poor, good news to the brokenhearted, good news to those held captive, good news to the blind, and good news to the oppressed. Jesus was full of good news to hurting people.

Jesus came bearing the Gospel of grace, even though it wouldn’t be official until His death. All these had both a physical and spiritual meaning. These people finally saw a way out of their tragic circumstances. The religious offered no hope. The law offered no hope. There was no good news to the weary traveler. However, Jesus came with hope, love, and compassion for the brokenhearted. He healed, delivered, freed, and gave the gospel of the new kingdom of God. Grace and truth came by Jesus. Jesus is the good news.
