When Jesus inaugurates His public ministry in Nazareth, He begins by rooting His work in the divine plan. Jesus was sent by the Father to bring the Good News, because He is the Good News?

Am I prepared to be set free to pursue eternal life? Am I ready to follow Jesus to do so? Do I act like a bearer of good news?

O God, may I have a buoyant spirit. May I seek to imitate Jesus today. May my own words and deeds speak only of good news.
