So He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up. And as His custom was, He went into the synagogue on the Sabbath day, and stood up to read.  And He was handed the book of the prophet Isaiah. And when He had opened the book, He found the place where it was written: “The Spirit of the LORD is upon Me, Because He has anointed Me To preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives And recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the LORD.” Then He closed the book, and gave it back to the attendant and sat down. And the eyes of all who were in the synagogue were fixed on Him.  And He began to say to them, “Today this Scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.”  (Luke 4:16-21)
Years ago it was the rage to wear a rubber wristband that had the letters WWJDand you would see it in other placest-shirts, bumper stickers, and so forth.  It meant, What Would Jesus Do? 
But, I like the letters WDJD better: What Did Jesus Do? because if we know what He did, then we know what we are supposed to do.  Before Christ ascended back to heaven He told His disciples, As the Father has sent Me, I also send you.  His mission is our mandate.

Let’s do a spiritual inventory this week and see how we measure up!
