Savior as well as a Servant...Isaiah 53:3-4

Isaiah 53:3-4 

He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,a punishment for his own sins! 

Jesus was everything and became nothing for us. Yet most of the people who were on earth that he came to save didn't know him or accept him. The crowds just assumed he deserved what he got. Most did not repent. But there was something about that sacrificial story that has grabbed hearts over the years and called God's lost children home. In our journey home, we find him to not only be a Savior, but a servant for our salvation as well.

Matthew 25:21 “The master was full of praise. ‘Well done, my good and faithful servant. You have been faithful in handling this small amount, so now I will give you many more responsibilities. Let’s celebrate together!’  May we always remember our humility by the blood of Jesus and be the servant he has asked us to be in His name!

Heavenly Father, we ask that you teach us your will through your Holy Spirit and help us to utilize the gifts we each have been given. We praise your name always! In Jesus name, AMEN!
