The justice God’s Servant will bring to us is hard to comprehend. It’s not simply repaying wrong or stopping evil at a personal level. God’s justice will be wider and deeper than that. It’s putting all things back in their right order, as God created.
In Isaiah 42, the Servant will have God’s Spirit, and work ‘hand in hand’ with God.
His justice will be for the whole world. It will be freedom from sin. Release and restoration for God’s children. It will reveal the glory of God.
Surprisingly, the Servant will bring it through gentleness. Yet, it will come at great cost to God… ‘like a woman in childbirth, I cry out, I gasp and pant.’
The Gospels tell us that Jesus is the Servant Isaiah prophesied, 700 years before he came to earth. Let’s lift our eyes to the Servant when we cry out for justice. Let’s allow him to serve us, for the glory of God to be revealed!
In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
