Serving Our World
the jesus manifesto
In LUKE 4:18-19 Jesus shares with us the way of life He calls us to as His followers. At 2nd Street we refer to these verses as The Jesus Manifesto.
18 THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME,
BECAUSE HE ANOINTED ME TO PREACH THE
GOSPEL TO THE POOR. HE HAS SENT ME TO
PROCLAIM RELEASE TO THE CAPTIVES, AND
RECOVERY OF SIGHT TO THE BLIND, TO SET
FREE THOSE WHO ARE OPPRESSED,
19 TO PROCLAIM THE FAVORABLE YEAR OF THE LORD.
Jesus was on a mission, and He challenges us as His followers to live
"missionally" in this world ... and to live with hearts bent toward
understanding how we're to live out The Jesus Manifesto in ways
big and obvious, as well as in ways small and barely noticeable.
Look at the web pages in the menu options above and discover some
of the many ways 2nd Street is chasing The Jesus Manifesto priorities
of compassionately seeking first the Kingdom of God — in our
community, and in the world.
