Keeping Up The Lord’s Good Work…

I believe for all of us working with The Way, the following passage from Isaiah 61:1 states well what we try to do. 61 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…
