Scripture: Luke 4
An interesting part of Luke 4 is that Jesus said that He was anointed to preach deliverance but it doesn’t say what we were delivered from. He was anointed to bring freedom from captivity but it doesn’t identify the captivity. Af-es-is is a picture of the culmination of a process whereby we are delivered from the very nature of sin itself so that it no longer reigns over us. The work of Christ therefore is designated as deliverance from everything that holds man prisoner away from God. Setting a sinful man free would be very dangerous without God simultaneously changing that man’s nature.
