The Identity & Work of the Servant

The Identity of the Servant

Isaiah 49:1

What makes a fire burn
 is space between the logs,
 a breathing space.
 Too much of a good thing,
 too many logs
 packed in too tight
 can douse the flames
 almost as surely
 as a pail of water would.
 So building fires
 requires attention
 to the spaces in between,
 as much as to the wood.
 When we are able to build
 open spaces
 in the same way
 we have learned
 to pile on the logs,
 then we can come to see how
 it is fuel, and absence of the fuel
 together, that make fire possible.“
 -Judy Brown 

Isaiah 49:2

John 14:6

John 8:31-32

“The truth will set you free, but not until it’s done with you.”

David Foster Wallace

“You will watch a generation of Christians – OF CHRISTIANS – set the Bible aside in an attempt to become more like Jesus. And stunningly it will sound completely plausible. This will be perhaps the cleverest of all the devil’s schemes in your generation. Sacrifice TRUTH for LOVE’s sake. And you will rise or fall based upon whether you will sacrifice one for the other. Will you have the courage to live in the tension of both TRUTH & LOVE?”

Beth Moore

Isaiah 49:3
