Behold, my servant whom I have chosen, my beloved with whom my soul is well pleased. I will put my Spirit upon him, and he will proclaim justice to the Gentiles. He will not quarrel or cry aloud, nor will anyone hear his voice in the streets; a bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not quench, until he brings justice to victory; and in his name the Gentiles will hope.
Jesus is the “real deal.” Being a Christian isn’t about which political candidate you choose, what your ethics are like, where you live, or a list of dos and don’ts… It’s all (and only) about Jesus. Listen to who he is…
He was chosen by God… trust him.
He is pleasing to God… he did well.
He is empowered by God… he won’t lose.
He is a preacher for us… listen to him.
He is just… what he does is right.
He doesn’t need to stir-up noise and bluster to distract and convince us… he is our only hope.
May we follow Jesus and not ourselves.
