Faith without works is dead. – James 2:17

Isaiah 42:6-7

I, the LORD, have called you for justice, I have grasped you by the hand; I formed you, and set you as a covenant for the people, a light for the nations, to open the eyes of the blind, to bring out prisoners from confinement, and from the dungeon, those who live in darkness.

In today’s scripture…the Prophet Isaiah was speaking of the coming Messiah.

Jesus later embraced these words (Luke 4:18-19) as his own mission statement.

If you identify as a Christian…then that means this is your mission statement as well.

Are you carrying out this mission?

Many Christians seem to be good church-goers…but I’m not so sure how well they are actually following Jesus’ mission.

Jesus called us to follow him…which would mean reaching out to the oppressed and all those in need.
