Isiah 50:1-11

Tuesday, 26 March 2024

Let him trust in the name of the LORD,

And rely upon his God.    Isaiah 50: 10


This is a week Christians meditate on the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  The darkest day in history is but one that brought redemption to the whole world, as we come face to face with THE GREATEST CHAMPION OF ALL MEN!  As various men are trying to champion their cause, there is none who can match His equal.  Not only did He defeat all rivals, He also delivered us from the hand of the enemy. His Name is JESUS!

Today’s reading portion is a prophetic word of this coming deliverer. As we remember His death and resurrection, lets us take time to contemplate on-this CHAMPION

Just as we see Him reaching out to the people of Israel, He does so for each of us today.

1. His Power can save us – In Isaiah 50: 2-3 we read how God has the power to do the impossible on this earth. But as Isaiah 59:1-2 says: Listen! The Lord’s arm is not too weak to save you, nor is his ear too deaf to hear you call. It’s your sins that have cut you off from God. Because of your sins, he has turned away and will not listen anymore. Very often just like the Israelites, instead of acknowledging our sinful ways, we blame God for our exiles (problems). As you meditate on His resurrection power, would you turn your eyes to the one who can pull you out of any deep, dark pit you are in. Only the Light of the Saviour can break through into the darkness of our lives and bring us to salvation.

2. His Words Comforts Us- Isaiah 50: 4 says about the tongue of a disciple, which will encourage the weak one with a word.  This verse is fulfilled when Jesus came into this world, as Luke records in chap.4:22 “All spoke well of Him and were amazed at the gracious words that came from His lips.”  He spoke words of forgiveness to the woman caught in adultery (John 8), words of assurance to the father with unbelief (Mark 9), and just before He died, He spoke words of acceptance to the thief on the cross (Luke 23). What are the words that have pierced your heart and wounded you? Jesus in Matt 11:28 says “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.” God can heal any emotional and spiritual wound. He is the healing balm of Gilead for each of us. His Words speaks louder than every lie of the devil.

3. His Life Laid Down For Us – Isiah 50: 5-6 is a prophecy fulfilled in the life of Jesus when he suffered deep humiliation and pain in the hands of Roman soldiers. Our Saviour was not rebellious or disobedient to His Father’s word—One who never turned away from God’s will. He was beaten, mocked and spat upon, which he willingly endured and then He laid down His life as a sacrifice to redeem us from the hands of the devil (v.6). In 1 Peter 2:22& 23 we read, “He committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth. When they hurled their insults at him, he did not retaliate; when he suffered, he made no threats. Instead, he entrusted himself to him who judges justly.”  He did this all for us so that we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way.

As we celebrate the death and resurrection of Jesus, may we never forget the true meaning of it that: “Jesus is our Champion of our faith – he fought the battle over sin and death and has brought us the Victory.”


To heed:  Who is among you that fears the LORD,

                           That obeys the voice of His servant,

                           That walks in darkness and has no light?

                         Let him trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God. (Is.50:10)
