Our Holy Servant

Jesus is the only hope for mankind. The more we learn and grow in him and learn his ways, the more we will yield and trust him through the power of the Holy Spirit. Despite the rejection by the Pharisees in his day as well as that of unbelievers today, Jesus remains God’s chosen one. More than that, he is also a servant.

In the days when Jesus walked the earth, great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all. Jesus bore no discrimination. His ways are true, gentle, compassionate, and just.

“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” ~ Isaiah 42

 Jesus is not only prophet, priest, and king. “He who is greatest among you, shall be your servant” (Matthew 23:11). Jesus describes himself as a servant throughout the books of Matthew and Mark. In Acts 3, Apostle Peter refers to Jesus as his servant.  In Acts 4, the praying people of God speak of “Your holy Servant Jesus.”

Jesus, the true servant, is an example to us. He serves us through not only what he did in the past but also presently. Our advocate, Jesus, did not stop serving when he ascended back to heaven. He continues to serve every day through his constant and abiding love, care, guidance, and intercession.
