Who Me? No, not me. I’m not the one you’re looking for. Yes, I heard Jesus’ job description… "The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the LORD's favor" (Isaiah 61:1-2). And I heard how that job description is transferred to me…"As the Father has sent me, I am sending you" (John 20:21). Which sounds good in theory, but let’s talk reality. For starters, I’m untrained. I don’t know what to do or how to do it. I don’t know the Scriptures. I don’t know how to answer probing questions about the cross of Christ or why we believe what we believe. I don’t know how to talk to people about their problems and hardships.
