Thoughts on Isaiah 42

Behold my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen, in whom my soul delights; I have put my Spirit upon him; he will bring forth justice to the nations. (Isaiah 42:1 MSG)

In verses 1 to 4, I can feel the Father’s pride regarding his Son. The way He talks about the Son, you can tell the depth of the relationship they share. Which just makes me realize even more the greatness of the sacrifice they made. Why go to that extent? Because God loves us (verses 5 to 9). Worship, then, is the natural response, as encouraged in the next verses. Although, just by the greatness of His power He is already most worthy of worship, we worship not because of fear, but we are able to worship because of gratefulness and love.

So hear, look – don’t just stand there passively! God is speaking and showing you great things, and you have to actively listen and see.
