John 1:12-13

Luke 4:18-19, John 10:10 Jesus speaking of himself

The Spirit of the Lord is on 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 favour.

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.

Is that true?
Could a good man say such things?
Is Jesus really a good man?
Many voices through the last 2000 years declare "Yes", God has visited his people, this is the year of the Lord's favour.

Acts 1:38 What shall we do?

Repent and be baptised, every one of you (no exceptions), in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Sprit. The promise is for you and for your children.

Repentance - take ownership of problem and change direction.
Forgiveness - no longer stand in judgement of.

Jesus teaches us to forgive others as we have been forgiven Matthew 18:21-35.
We make a break with what happened in the past, what happened in childhood, what happened 200 years ago ... and we walk in new life, a new creation, Jesus living inside me by his Spirit John 14:15-27.
