Adoring Christ: God’s Suffering Servant
Series: O Come Let Us Adore Him
 The Lord GOD has given me
the tongue of those who are taught,
that I may know how to sustain with a word
him who is weary.
Morning by morning he awakens;
he awakens my ear
to hear as those who are taught.
 The Lord GOD has opened my ear,
and I was not rebellious;
I turned not backward.
 I gave my back to those who strike,
and my cheeks to those who pull out the beard;
I hid not my face
from disgrace and spitting.
 But the Lord GOD helps me;
therefore I have not been disgraced;
therefore I have set my face like a flint,
and I know that I shall not be put to shame.
 He who vindicates me is near.
Who will contend with me?
Let us stand up together.
Who is my adversary?
Let him come near to me.
 Behold, the Lord GOD helps me;
who will declare me guilty?
Behold, all of them will wear out like a garment;
the moth will eat them up. (ESV)

Selections from Isaiah
The time of Advent is nothing less than a time in which we give concentrated focus to adoring Jesus. It’s a time to incline our hearts to him, to align our affections unto him - to adore him! There is no greater person who is more deserving of our adoration and there no greater person who can satisfy the deep longings of our hearts than the person of Jesus Christ. This Advent season, it is our aim to set our hearts fully on adoring Jesus Christ by considering who he is and how we are to live a life of adoration. Adoration is an act of sheer vulnerability. It’s an act whereby we cast off our distractions and reservations for a greater personal communion with Christ himself. So this Advent season, Come! Let us adore Him! And may the Spirit expand the capacity of our hearts to know a greater adoration for our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
