The Gentle Savior

commentary by Cindy Bleuler Tucker

 Behold my servant, in whom I uphold,
my chosen, in whom my soul delights:
I have put my Spirit upon Him;
he will bring forth justice to the nations,
He will not cry aloud or lift up his voice,
or make it heard in the street;
a bruised reed he will not break,
and a faintly burning wick he will not quench;
he will faithfully bring forth
justice.” Isaiah 42:13

When Jesus came to earth to rescue His people, he did not come in violence and force.  He was gentle with His fallen people.  The woman at the well (John 4), the woman caught in adultery (John 8:1-11), and the man blind from earth (John 9) are only a few examples of Jesus dealing gently with His hurting people.  He brings justice one person at a time by changing individual hearts.
