Lent Day 7 – ‘The Spirit of the Lord is upon me’

Wednesday 8th March 2017


Luke 4 : 16 – 19

When he (Jesus) came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, he went to the synagogue on the sabbath day, as was his custom. He stood up to read, and the scroll of the prophet Isaiah was given to him. He unrolled the scroll and found the place where it was written: ‘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 favour.’


  1. Help us Lord to be receptive to your spirit. It is of God’s making; give us the willingness to receive it.
