Matthew 12:18-21

"Behold, My Servant whom I have chosen,

My Beloved in whom My soul is well pleased;

I will put My Spirit upon Him,

And He will declare justice to the Gentiles.

He will not quarrel nor cry out,

Nor will anyone hear HIs voice in the streets.

A bruised reed He will not break,

And smoking flax He will not quench,

Till He sends forth justice to victory.

And in His name Gentiles will trust."

Step 2:

Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves

could restore us to sanity

 

What a beautiful picture of God's gentleness and power are these verses quoted from Isiah!

 

Jesus, the Beloved Servant, was God in the flesh.  

His actions and life while He was on earth show us clearly God's character and concerns.  

He was so compassionate toward the downtrodden that Isaiah describes Him as careful not to

break a battered reed.  He would not extinguish a wick struggling to stay lit.  He proved again and again His compassion for saint and sinner alike.  

 

But that gentleness was underscored by His great and awesome power.  

The very Savior who could speak kind and encouraging words to a woman caught in adultery

could as easily raise the dead, drive out demons, and control the very forces of nature.

 

The power that resurrected Jesus from the dead is the same power that He offers to resurrect us

from the living death of our dependencies and to alter the course of our lives.
