“How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him” (Acts 10:38).Text — Acts 10:34-38
Jesus Christ left His glory in heaven and came to this world to pay the ultimate price for man’s redemption from sin with His blood. But before His vicarious death on the cross, He went about freely doing good by healing the sick, delivering the oppressed and bound, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom in the power of the Holy Ghost for over three years.
If you are a follower of Christ, He wants you to be like Him; do good to other people, by the power of the Holy Ghost, as much as you can, wherever you can and as long as you live. “He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked” (1John 2:6).
If missionaries like John G. Lake, David Livingstone and Mary Slessor could travel very far to foreign lands in Africa just to preach to sinners, heal the sick and the oppressed for free like Jesus, you too can do likewise at home, school, market and wherever you go.
He wants you to be like Him
Aim to do good like your Saviour, Jesus Christ.
