What is the point of being a Christian? Jesus said, “ God's Spirit is on me;       he's chosen me to preach the message of good news to the poor,    Sent me to announce pardon to prisoners and       recovery of sight to the blind,    To set the burdened and battered free,       to announce, "This is God's year to act!" Luke 4:18-19
