Wow -
ok in prayer this morning we got blindsided by God. We were suddenly arrested with His heart for the poor and the broken. The Lord took me to his statement in the synagogue in Nazareth when he opened to Isaiah 61 and proclaimed his mission it is found in Luke 4:18 "The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

Jesus heart was always for the poor and it still is. If we are His body and carrying his mantle in the earth should this not be as central to us as it was to Him?
Father forgive us for relegating ministry to the poor to those ministries you have raised up to do it. Give us compassion in our hearts and show us what we are to do from this point forward! Give us wisdom Father!
Amen
