pass on the favour

random thoughts, inspired from isaiah…

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,

because the Lord has anointed me

to preach good news to the poor.

He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,

to proclaim freedom for the captives

and release from darkness for the prisoners,

to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor

They will [the poor, brokenhearted, captives, prisoners] be called oaks of righteousness,

a planting of the Lord

for the display of his splendor.

They will rebuild the ancient ruins…

they will renew the ruined cities… 

Isaiah 61.

so when you share the kingdom with broken people, what do you see?  do you just see a messed up person who needs jesus?  or do you see a favoured person?  …a kingdom builder who just doesn’t know it yet.

this is what i see… i see a big target on them that says FAVOUR… HERE!  i don’t have to change them, or convict them, or preach to them…  just pass on the favour.

What a privilege.
