Luke 4, 18-19

1.  Jesus interprets His mission under the Spirit’s inspiration.  This the right method; a cold, calculating spirit is not of God.  Under this anointing He accepted the Father’s will.

2.  His work was for body, mind & soul.  He never turned a soul away but yearned after all.

None of His work was transient.  It was the beginning of a world movement which the church was to carry on to the finish.  See Jno. 20, 21; also 14, 12.  They were to do not one work, but “the works” He did.

3.  Hence educational missions are scriptural and absolutely essential.  There can be no strong, self-supporting church without it.  It is needed to train the native preachers and workers.

4.  Medical missions is the church continuing Christ’s work of healing.  Else the church “passes by on the other side.”  Easiest made self-sustaining & not one whit behind other departments in Spiritual results, besides the pain it kills.

5.  He will approve it all at last & does now.  “I was hungry & ye gave me meat, sick & ye visited me.”  “Enter ye.”  Will He say it to you?
