God Presents the Savior: Behold My Servant

Throughout the entire Old Testament, repeatedly and in many ways, we are confronted with our need for a Savior.  Then in Isaiah 42:1-4, God presents him to us. “Behold, my servant,” he proclaims through Isaiah, pointing out six things he wants us to notice about him:

Behold my servant, whom I uphold,

my chosen, in whom my soul delights;

I have put my Spirit upon him;

his high position

he will bring forth justice to the nations.

his special calling

He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,

or make it heard in the street;

his humble approach

a bruised reed he will not break,

and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;

his gentle care and compassion

he will faithfully bring forth justice.

He will not grow faint or be discouraged

till he has established justice in the earth;

his faithful perseverance

and the coastlands wait for his law.

his universal appeal

There is a Savior, Jesus, sent to the world and to each of us individually.  Behold him!  Pay attention to him!

This advent devotional is based on Isaiah 42:1-4 as preached about by Rev. A. de Visser.  Eventually the entire sermon will be available online, and I will post a link here.
