I used to think I was someone special. Then the Lord put his hand on me and I crumbled to the ground.
Apart from Christ, I am nothing. I am a vessel, set apart for a special purpose.
“The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”[a]Luke 4:18-19New International Version (NIV)
