Here is 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. He will not cry or lift up his voice, or make it heard in the street; a bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench; he will faithfully bring forth justice. He will not grow faint or be crushed until he has established justice in the earth; and the coastlands wait for his teaching. Thus says God, the Lord, who created the heavens and stretched them out, who spread out the earth and what comes from it, who gives breath to the people upon it and spirit to those who walk in it: I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I have taken you by the hand and kept you; I have given you as a covenant to the people, a light to the nations, to open the eyes that are blind, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, from the prison those who sit in darkness. I am the Lord, that is my name; my glory I give to no other, nor my praise to idols. See, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth, I tell you of them. (Isaiah 42:1-9, NRSV)
The coming Messiah will not make a noise when he is put on trial and or cursed. He will not cry or make any noise and will take what comes His way.
The servant of our God will be an inextinguishable flame that will light all fo the world.
How do we share this light with the world?
How are we living out our callings to be light for the world during this waiting time of Advent?
You see every new thing will come from the servant of the Lord. He will come and make all things new. How can we help everyone see the grace they can get from God?
Live Advent and waiting out loud!
