The Mission to the World Day 12 of 20
These words, spoken by Isaiah some 700 years before Jesus was born, are read by Christians as speaking of Jesus. The great promise of his coming, according to Isaiah is justice: “he will bring justice to the nations”, “he will not falter or be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth”. A global transformation is envisaged, as “in his teaching the islands put their hope”. In a world where so much global change is accomplished with noise and aggression, the gentleness of the Lord’s servant stands out. Let’s pray for Christ to bring justice to the nations today.
