Text: Luke 4:16-30
For a song to sing
For the blind
For those yearning for freedom
The next few Sundays will be focused on song.
We hear today in Luke that Jesus declared to those gathered in the synagogue in Nazareth that the Spirit was upon him, and because of that Spirit, Jesus was empowered to proclaim Good News.
We who have been baptized have received that same Spirit and have that same anointing: to proclaim Good News. You and I go nowhere without the Spirit of the Lord, who gives us guidance, protection and power.
As Patrick sang long ago:
"I bind unto myself today
The strong name of the Trinity
By invocation of the same
The Three-in-One and One-in-Three."
As we travel, we have company, and we have a song!
Easter joy ~ Pr. Dave Brooks
