The Spirit Of The Lord

On the day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit was first poured out upon his body, the church, not merely for each believer’s personal blessing, but to equip us to bring the ministry of Jesus where there is need. I often use this song when people are responding to a call to serve.

Isaiah 61

The Spirit of the Lord
Is on me now,
Poured out like oil over me,
For the Lord has called
And anointed me
To preach good news to the poor.

To bind the broken heart,
To free the captive soul,
Open blind eyes,
Make broken people whole.
And I know this is the hour
Of His favour and His power,
And His Spirit is upon me now.
