Jesus came to set the captives free

Luke 4:18
“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives
and recovering of sight to the blind,
to set at liberty those who are oppressed,

One of my favorite passages in the Bible.

 Luke 4:19 to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.

I have been working on a 3 minute speech for stage time at the John Maxwell certification conference in 2 weeks.   my paraphrase and part of my speech says Jesus came to heal the brokenhearted and to set the captives free. While I have been working on this,  I wonder why I allow myself to stay bound up in certain areas of my life. Maybe some of you have wondered the same thing?   I can’t give you the solution but Jesus can. Many times we forget the simplicity of this Walk With Jesus. Sometimes all we have to do is ask. The problem that I see is that many times we don’t want to ask because we’re afraid of the truth whatever that may be.

 

What is the hard question you need to ask yourself?
