April 5
Lesson 6 (KJV)
Just Servant
Devotional Reading:Psalm 98
Background Scripture:Isaiah 42
Isaiah 42:1–9
1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.
3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
5 Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of
it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:
6 I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
8 I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Digging Deeper

 Prayer
We thank YouFather, for sending the promised servant to save us and inaugurate Your justice on earth. May the Holy Spirit empower us with the courage to follow Your servant’s humble example as we serve Him and those around us. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
Thought to Remember
Jesus is the champion of justice
and the servant of all servants.
