Missions with A Global Vision has adopted the “The Nazareth Manifesto”: The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to release the oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor (Luke 4:18, 19). Pure and lasting religion in the sight of God our Father means that we must care for orphans and widows in their troubles and, refuse to let the world corrupt us. - JAMES 1:27 God makes the Widows, orphans, and the poor His priority. Jesus, in his first message declared his passion for the poor. Early in His ministry He returned to His hometown of Nazareth to deliver an inaugural address. He entered the same synagogue where he had worshipped as a young man and looked into the faces of the villagers. They were simple folk: stonecutters, carpenters, and craftsmen. They survived on minimal wages and lived beneath the shadow of Roman oppression. There was not much good news in Nazareth, but this day was special as Jesus was in town.
They asked him to read the Scripture, and he accepted. “And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written” (Luke 4:17). He shuffled the scroll toward the end of the text and read, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted” (v. 18, quoting Isaiah 61:1). The crowd, who cherished the words as much as he did, mouthed the lines along with him. “To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed; to proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord” (vv. 18-19). Jesus had a target audience. The poor, the brokenhearted, the captives, the blind and the oppressed. His to-do list? Help for the body and soul, strength for the physical and spiritual, therapy for the temporal and eternal. This is my mission statement, Jesus declared, “The Nazareth Manifesto.” Just as the Lord declared His desire to help the poor, so did we. Our organisation decided to follow in His footsteps.
