The Spirit of the Lord has been given to us, the people of God. It is this Spirit which empowers us to bring good news to the poor, liberty to captives and to open the eyes of those who stray from the ways of the Lord. Try to always be eye witnesses to the healing and teaching of Jesus Christ. After all, you are an indispensable part of the body, a rock to those in need of healing and hope....
