oaks of righteousness
Oaks of Righteousness

“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me,    because the Lord has anointed meto bring good news to the poor;    he has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,to proclaim liberty to the captives,    and the opening of the prison to those who are bound;to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor,     and the day of vengeance of our God;    to comfort all who mourn;to grant to those who mourn in Zion—     to give them a beautiful headdress instead of ashes,the oil of gladness instead of mourning,    the garment of praise instead of a faint spirit;that they may be called oaks of righteousness,    the planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”

Isaiah 61:1-3

“Training is the engine of Gospel growth. Under God, the way to get more Gospel growth happening is to train more and more mature, godly Christians to be vine-workers – that is, to see more people equipped, resourced, and encouraged to speak the Word prayerfully to other people…”
