Bible text(s)

The LORD's Servant

1The LORD says,

“Here is my servant, whom I strengthen —

the one I have chosen, with whom I am pleased.

I have filled him with my Spirit,

and he will bring justice to every nation.

2He will not shout or raise his voice

or make loud speeches in the streets.

3He will not break off a bent reed

or put out a flickering lamp.

He will bring lasting justice to all.

4He will not lose hope or courage;

he will establish justice on the earth.

Distant lands eagerly wait for his teaching.”

Isaiah 42:1-4GNBOpen in Bible reader

Beginning with God’s covenants with Noah, Abram and David, these readings explore God’s ongoing mission to restore his broken creation, drawing people back to himself. God’s mission finds its fulfilment in the person and work of Jesus Christ, a mission which the church continues today
