Growup: Day 232

Isa 42:1-43:28

Finally great comfort arrives for the people of God. Future hope, news of a servant:

Isaiah 42:1 Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations.

Isaiah 42:6-7 I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles,  7 to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.

Comfort has arrived for the people of God. Hope is here the servant has come:

Luke 2:28-32 28 Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:  29 “Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you now dismiss {29 Or promised, now dismiss} your servant in peace.  30 For my eyes have seen your salvation,  31 which you have prepared in the sight of all people,  32 a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel.”

Luke 3:21-22 21 When all the people were being baptized, Jesus was baptized too. And as he was praying, heaven was opened  22 and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form like a dove. And a voice came from heaven: “You are my Son, whom I love; with you I am well pleased.”
