Good morning, all!
We begin a look at the last of Isaiah’s “Songs of the Servant,” in which God reveals to Isaiah a prophecy of the coming Messiah and Servant-King, Jesus Christ. Revelation will be the theme of today’s sermon as we examine Jehovah (God)’s revelation to Isaiah about Jesus Christ and Isaiah’s meditations on human reactions to this revelation. The prophecy reveals, as Pastor Bodner writes, that “[t]he Saviour’s climax of glory comes at a cost of greatest grief to Him, but with the consequence of greatest grace to us.”

First Song: Down From His Glory
Down from His glory,
Ever living story,
My God and Savior came,
And Jesus was His name.
Born in a manger,
To His own a stranger,
A Man of sorrows, tears and agony.
O how I love Him! How I adore Him!
My breath, my sunshine, my all in all!
The great Creator became my Savior,
And all God’s fullness dwelleth in Him.
Bringing us redemption;
That in the dead of night,
Not one faint hope in sight,
God, gracious, tender,
Laid aside His splendor,
Stooping to woo, to win, to save my soul.
Flesh and blood His substance
He took the form of man,
Revealed the hidden plan.
O glorious myst’ry,
Sacrifice of Calv’ry,
And now I know Thou art the great “I AM.”
“The resurrection of Jesus — along with the death of Jesus — is the greatest event in the universe.”—John Piper
