The Year of the Lord's Favor
Isaiah 61
September 30, 2018
Isaiah Old Testament

Isaiah 61 is a Messianic passage about Christ written hundreds of years before Christ that was fulfilled by Christ. In Luke 4, Jesus read from Isaiah 61 when He taught at the synagogue in Nazareth and said that He was the fulfillment of that passage—declaring Himself to be the Messiah. The verses Jesus read speak about the mission of His ministry and how He desires to bring healing, freedom, forgiveness and salvation to all who would believe and receive Him. Pastor Gary connects Isaiah 61 and Luke 4 and shares how God takes broken, sinful people and brings beauty out of the ashes of our lives.
