B90X “the Servant of the LORD” Day 53 (Is 52:13- Is 66:18)

Another beautiful day in Colorado Saints!

Imagine for a moment you are a citizen of Judah during the prophetic span of Isaiah’s ministry.  The dates maybe somewhere around 740-700 BC.  You saw your brothers in the North fall underseige to the Assyrians and there are strong, very strong warnings that the Babylonians are coming your way to do the same to you in the South.  Mingled in Isaiah’s words are those of hope.  A surprising mention of a servant.  In obviously distinctive and fresh language, a vision and an application of a servant who will do things for the nation never before seen or heard.  The ‘servant of God’ strand flowing through Isaiah marks a significant mysterious character whose qualities rival any prophet, priest, or king.  Five ‘songs’ are featured in the latter portions of Isaiah.

 Who is this servant?  If you were hearing Isaiah’s words, you would truly be baffled.  Is it Cyrus, Hezekiah, Eliakim, a missionary, Isaiah himself, a reincarnated Moses or Elijah, the nation of Israel, another king, God himself, is it the people of God corporately, are they individual ‘believers’, or is it an individual who is a messianic figure?  The options abound for the hearers.  He is a mystery man!

Day 32 B90X (2 Ch 7:11- 2 Ch 23:15)

Good work saints~  I hope all is so well for you this chilly day.  Jesus bless you today as you minister missionally within your spheres of influence.

Day 21 B90X (1 Sa 16:1- 1 Sa28:19)

Good Friday Saints~~
 
Are you keeping at it?  Reading through the Bible at the daily rate we are takes determination and discipline.  The reward is that there is a delight like no other.  Thank you Jesus.  Even if you have found yourself a day, two days, or a week behind, don’t give up.  Just purpose in your heart to daily get back at it.  Just throw down an extra chapter or two and you will right back on skedge.  Just get up a bit earlier every day or turn the TV off for the evening.  You can do anything for 69 more days!
