Isaiah 61:1-3 – The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me

Published On: 7 de November de 2021Categories: Bible Study

Have you stopped to reflect on what your calling is in God’s work? We all have a specific calling for our lives, but it’s not always easy to understand what the Lord has reserved for us. Today, we will explore God’s calling.

At this very moment, reflect, ask yourself: What is my calling?

I invite you to open the word of God. Read Isaiah 61:1-3, where the prophet speaks to us about the divine calling.

Isaiah 61:1-3 — The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim 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 and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendor.

To fulfill God’s Calling in our lives, we need to pay attention to some points that the word of God will reveal to us. In this Bible study, we will follow verse by verse to discover what our calling is. We all have a calling, regardless of whether we belong to a ministry or not.

Isaiah 61.1-3 offers us a description of the Messiah and his anointing, relating to his mission or ministry. Isaiah more directly describes the character and supremacy in chapter 11.2,3. When Jesus began his ministry, he quoted these verses, applying them in the same way.

We observe that Jesus’ anointed ministry is described in Luke 4.18-19, including:

Preaching the Gospel to the poor, humble, and afflicted; Healing the spiritually and physically broken; Destroying the chains of evil and proclaiming liberation from sin and the domain of evil; Clearing the spiritual eyes of the lost so they may see the light of the gospel and be saved.

This quadruple purpose characterized the ministry of Jesus Christ and will continue to be fulfilled by the church while on earth.

What Is Your Calling? 1st Preach the Gospel to the poor, the humble, and the afflicted.

1st Preach the Gospel to the poor, the humble and the afflicted.

Matthew 28:19 — Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

The fulfillment of “go” consists of announcing the gospel, bringing it to those who still do not have full knowledge of the truth. Whether it is a person who has strayed from the Lord’s ways or someone who has never walked those paths.

Your calling includes bringing the gospel to every creature, regardless of where they are or their condition.

“Go” means bringing the gospel to everyone, proclaiming that Jesus Christ heals, saves, liberates, renews, and leads to heaven.

Affirm that Jesus is the only way, the truth, and the life, and that no one goes to the Father except through him. Let us begin to fulfill God’s calling!

2nd Heal the Spiritually and Physically Sick and the Brokenhearted

Matthew 10:8 — Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give.

The Lord Jesus has given us authority to drive out all sickness, raise the dead, heal lepers, and free people from evil oppressions.

What we have received freely, we must also offer freely to others. Let us pray with faith, believing that God will heal, transform, renew, and liberate, witnessing the impossible becoming reality, as the word of God affirms.

John 14:13 — And I will do whatever you ask in my name, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son.

3rd Break the Bonds of Evil and Proclaim Liberation from Sin and the Domain of Evil

2 Corinthians 3:17 — Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

Where the Holy Spirit acts, there is liberation, transformation, renewal, spiritual enrichment, life and character change. When we allow God to act, liberation occurs not only in us but also in those around us.

Your calling is to promote the liberation of those who are captive, powerless, discouraged, oppressed, and burdened by evil forces.

Therefore, your calling is to minister this gospel with total boldness, breaking the bonds of evil and proclaiming liberation from sin and the domain of evil.

Opening the spiritual eyes of the lost so they may see the light of the gospel and be saved.

Acts 2:21 — And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved!

4th The Fourth and Final Calling Consists of Opening the Spiritual Eyes of Those Who Have Not Yet Had an Encounter with God, So That They May Also See and Live in the Light of the Gospel and Be Saved.

There are people at this moment who need a friendly word, a message that proclaims: Jesus Christ heals, saves, liberates, and leads to heaven. There are people at this moment who just want to hear: “Jesus loves you.”

Your calling is to minister the gospel, preach the word to the poor and needy, covering all social classes. We understand that the calling is to heal those who are sick, both physically and spiritually.

We understand that God’s calling in our lives is to break the stings of evil, proclaiming liberation from sin, announcing liberation from oppression. God’s calling consists of opening the eyes of those who have not yet glimpsed the Kingdom of Heaven. The calling is to fulfill the “go” throughout the world, preaching the gospel to every creature. It is to bring this gospel to those in need.

From this moment on, may we minister the gospel that the Lord places in our hands. May we bring this word to the homeless, to those whom society looks at and says there is no more hope, for with Jesus everything is possible.

Now that we understand our calling, may we bring the word to those living in torturous lives! May we bring the word of God and transform the lives and stories of those who have not yet recognized Jesus as their Savior. Only the word of God has the power of liberation (John 8:32) — “And you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”

May we bring this word of faith to those who have not yet discovered what their calling is!

If this message has been uplifting to your life, we ask only two things:
