Part 6: Good news of the Anointed One

(This is part 6 of 12 parts in this class)


Now notice what gospel we are talking about. God's gospel - or good news - for us is the good news of Christ. It is the good news that God's Anointed One (this is what Christ means) has been sent to us. Jesus came on a mission for us. He lived out this mission on earth. His mission was the mission of the Anointed One.


Jesus declared in Nazareth the good news of His mission. He said,

The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives, And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.

Luke 4:18-19 - NKJV


This is the good news of the Anointed One and you need to keep reminding yourself of it. You need to keep letting Jesus be the Anointed One in your life. Keep letting Him do the work of the Anointed One for you; for He continues forever as the Anointed One in Heaven. You need to set your hope firmly and immovably on this good news.

You are establishing the hope of the gospel in your life every time you consider Jesus as the Anointed One in your life. This hope will anchor your soul and prevent it getting all worked up, or sent off on a tangent, when things don't quite work out as you believe they should.
