The Servant King

The title public servant is common but the concept of being a leader and a servant isn’t. Isaiah’s servant is anointed by the Spirit and brings justice, but his justice will not bruise or break. The Servant King, just as the Good Shepherd, will guard the weak and dependent, taking them in his arms to protect and carry them.
Jesus came to serve. He was born a man and died an unjust death. He gave his life so we could live. Instead of pursuing a political kingdom with its riches and power, he humbled himself and became a servant. Through service his kingdom was established.
“King Jesus, anoint me with the spirit of service. Help me not promote myself, but to love, care for and bless others.”
