Behold! My Servant

Today, as we commemorate the revelation of Jesus Christ to the Gentile world, it is

important that we draw lessons from the life and times of Jesus that made him a divine and earthly phenomenon to behold.

Matthew 12;14-21

14 Then the Pharisees went out, and held a council against him, how they might destroy him.

15 But when Jesus knew it, he withdrew himself from thence: and great multitudes followed him, and he healed them all;

16 And charged them that they should not make him known:

17 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet, saying,

18 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 shall shew judgment to the Gentiles.

19 He shall not strive, nor cry; neither shall any man hear his voice in the streets.

20 A bruised reed shall he not break, and smoking flax shall he not quench, till he send forth judgment unto victory.

21 And in his name shall the Gentiles trust.

From the passage, it is instructive to note that Jesus was not ready to be distracted or entangled by the devices of the pharisees.

He had a clear mission from the father, and as a result, neither quarreled nor

meddled with men of little minds. He was absolutely committed to his goal with an unbroke focus .

The father’s mission for us demand our soul, our life and our all; and as such we do

not have the luxury of time to meddle with men or be distracted by irrelevant tales by busybodies.

If the world must hear us and through us come to trust in God, then we need to rise above spiritual mediocrity which thrive in human eyes but amount to mere trivialities from the perspectives of heaven.


Dear Lord, May my life reveal you to the world. Help me to remain focused and committed to that to which you have called me .Amen
