Daily Devotion from the Church Health Center – Luke 4:18-19

Friday, January 25, 2013 – Third Sunday after Epiphany, Year C

Luke 4:18-19And Jesus read from Isaiah saying, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to bring good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim release to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to let the oppressed go free, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Imprisonment and blindness can be both literal and metaphorical. Regardless, if one is relieved of their imprisonment or blindness healing has taken place. Once again, scripture supports the centrality of healing as a part of Christ’s ministry.

Prayer: Gracious God, help us to be healing presences for all we see today and every day. Amen.
