Most kings have many servants. A king tells his servants what to do. Yesterday we learned that Jesus was called King. Today our Bible Reading calls Jesus a servant. It is hard to understand how Jesus can be a king and a servant!
These verses in Isaiah were written many years before Jesus came to earth. But they perfectly describe Jesus and the things He did on earth. Isaiah said that Jesus was hurt and punished and finally killed. Why? To accept the punishment for our sins.
When Jesus died on the cross, He served us. Verse 10b says, “…the Servant gave himself to be the one to die.” Verse 11b adds, “My Good Servant will make many people not guilty; he will carry away their guilt.” Jesus was willing to give up His life so we can live forever with Him.
Jesus wants to be the King of your life, but He also wants to serve you. Take some time today and think about His great sacrifice for you.
