“Even a mother can forget her child, but the LORD will not forget you.”

March 31, 2019

The center of Isaiah focuses on the Servant, whom the New Testament authors identify as Jesus Christ. This is the second of four “servant songs” that detail why Jesus comes into the world and what he comes to accomplish. Here we see the breadth and the depth of Jesus’ mission, and also something more: we get a lesson in how to experience his love when we feel numb to it.

Application Questions

  1. What about Jesus in this passage makes him worth “foregrounding” in your life? How might that affect different parts of a typical day?
  2. Have you ever found yourself believing things about Jesus without being personally affected? Why do you think that happens?
  3. How can you meditate more on the love of God in Jesus Christ? How do you think that would affect you?
