He has called me and set me apart

He sent me to give the Good News to the poor,
Tell prisoners that they are prisoners no more,
Tell blind people that they can see,
And set the downtrodden free"¦..


I learnt this hymn 40 years ago"¦. soon the words became my part of my life"¦. part of my being"¦.

Whenever I felt "alone""¦. "misunderstood""¦. i sang it in the silence of my heart"¦..

I began living out the words in my daily life"¦. Soon after I learnt the hymn"¦..

Since the last 10 years I've being living out the words more forcefully"¦.. moving against the currents more often then not"¦"¦. In the 2 two years have been living it out in a place where it is required the most"¦"¦"¦"¦"¦. Karbi Anglong District of Assam - India.

am enjoying doing it"¦.. for the sake of the "kingdom" because I believe "¦. All are equals "¦. All are free"¦"¦.

A hymn from my childhood - God's Spirit is in my heart,

Hi Guest,

The first part of the hymn looks like it's inspired by Luke 4:18 and 19, where Jesus, at the beginning of His ministry, himself quoted from Isaiah 61:1,2.

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

The third verse looks like it's from John 20:21, where Jesus sent His own disciples into the world.

'Again Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you."'

The final verse looks like it's inspired by Mark 13:11, where Jesus is instructing His disciples about the end times.

"Whenever you are arrested and brought to trial, do not worry beforehand about what to say. Just say whatever is given you at the time, for it is not you speaking, but the Holy Spirit."

Hope it helps! God bless!
Steve
