“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.”
To win lost souls to Christ, see that every believer is filled with the Holy Spirit, mentored, trained and equipped to fulfill the purpose of God in their lives.
