The Spirit of the Lord

Isaiah 61:1 The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the poor; he has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound. . . . #Bible

You can’t read just the first few verses here, you must read more. Jesus read from Isaiah 61 before Israel in the temple referring to Himself. What a pinnacle in history of humanity.

All that Christ does for us is to make us God’s people, and some way serviceable to him as living trees, planted in the house of the Lord, and flourishing in the courts of our God; and all this that he may be glorified –that we may be brought to glorify him by a sincere devotion and an exemplary conversation (for herein is our Father glorified, that we bring broth much fruit), that others also may take occasion from God’s favour shining on his people, and his grace shining in them, to praise him, and that he may be for ever glorified in his saints. (Matthew Henry)
