We are taking the words of Isaiah 61:1-2 seriously, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because the Lord has anointed Me to preach good tidings to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to those who are bound, to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all who mourn.” Clearly Isaiah is speaking about Jesus and and He said and did all of the above. Many believed and lived. Others did not. But the application is to all of us who have chosen to follow in His steps as our example of how to steward and walk out the Kingdom He brought and gave us to steward is also clear. We are merely His vessels, driven by the Holy Spirit, to be His hands and feet in the here and now to a world without hope apart from God that desperately needs to see Jesus in us.
OAXACA WINTER TRIP
DEC. 2012-JAN. 2013
It's all about JESUS and "leaking" His love, grace and mercy all over everyone with you whom you are in contact...ANYONE, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME. We didn't know who was blessed more on our 2012 trip to Oaxaca, our second one in 2012. We got out of our American comfort zone, again, but for a shorter length of time in the mountains of Oaxaca. You cannot minister to these people without them ministering in some very unique and special way back to you. We get to encourage, exhort, edify and build up the Body of Christ and pray for them...the things we read about in Isaiah 61:1-2. And now in 2017 more and more people are coming to Jesus, Christians exhorted and encouraged and Kingdom coming to earth.
