Jesus said in Luke 4:18-19, "The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised, to preach the acceptable year of the Lord."
If you have a heart for the the poor and marginalized, the left back and left out, the discriminated against, the sick and suffering people of this world, you are socially conscious. You're in the right place. The above Scripture is just one of many that demonstrates that Jesus Christ was socially conscious as well. He saved, delivered, healed, and set people free from their afflictions. He was a voice for the voiceless. Moreover, He socialized with those he served! You see, we realize that it is not about us, and how much we can name and claim. It's about Jesus!
Become a member of the Jesus Saves Social Network. We encourage you to take advantage of everything it has to offer -- set up your own web page, participate in forums, create blog posts, meet pastors, preachers, teachers, ministry leaders, Christians, and share with others what the Lord has given you to do in ministry. If you desire to know more about Jesus Christ, we welcome you to join as well. We pray that the dialogue is meaningful and thought-provoking, and that you will tell others about the Jesus Saves Social Network.
