Dear members and friends of St. Peter's Anglican Church,
The peace of the Lord be always with you.
THE MINISTRY OF JESUS.
The ministry of Jesus was a fulfilment of what Prophet Isaiah had prophesied in Isaiah 61:1-2: "The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim 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 and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,"
The ministry of Jesus was fourfold ministry.
1. To preach the good news of salvation to the poor.
2 To bind up the broken hearted.
3. To proclaim freedom for the captives and release from the darkness for the prisoners.
4. To proclaim the year of God's favor and the day of vengeance for our God and to comfort all those who mourn.
The ministry of Jesus is wholistic ministry. It covers all departments of life. Jesus has given his ministry to his disciples and to the whole Church. Jesus says: "Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.”
May God help us to do the whole ministry of Jesus and protect us in the name of Jesus.
In Christ Jesus our Lord,
