Nibble of Bread : Isaiah 53:7

July 28, 2012

The Role Model

Isaiah 53:7

He was oppressed and treated harshly, yet he never said a word. He was led like a lamb to the slaughter. And as a sheep is silent before the shearers, he did not open his mouth.

This another supplement to monday’s Nibble in 1 Peter 2:23. I feel it’s very important to not only grasp this but apply it. In anything we do, or strive to do having good role models are key. In fact their very important to improving and growing along the right paths. As Christians our role model is Jesus. One of the many great things about Jesus is that He never sinned and never fails, unlike human role models that all have weaknesses and eventually stumble. We must try to emulate the example he carried for us. It really hurts my heart when people can be so defensive, opinionated and passionate towards wrong. I want to live like Jesus. I want to be quiet when I am accused wrongly. I want to allow God to fight my battles. Who am I anyway to fight my own battles? I’m nobody. But in Christ I am a overcomer and more than a conqueror (Romans 8:37), that’s what I want to lean on.

 

I know that this type of post can create some questions. Please don’t hesitate to post a question. I could explain more, but to avoid being long-winded I have left it there. So I encourage questions in order for us all to grow closer to Christ and clearer in understanding through the Word of God.

    Such an amazing verse. Although Christ could have called down the heavenly hosts to destroy his persecutors, he remained silent as he was led to the cross. What an unbelievable example for us to follow. This verse really hit home for me as I struggle with anger and a temper (brother K you experienced this first hand in college). It’s not something I’m proud of and to be reminded how Jesus was beaten to a point of being unrecognizable and still didn’t say a word or rein fire down from heaven to destroy his persecutors really puts things in perspective. May we all strive to be humble servants for Christ.

    • Yes unbelievable example is right! I can definetly see how this hit home with your anger struggle. But Praise God mike that you are free from that bondage. May God continue to give you the overcoming strength and deliverance from that my brother! Just keep your role model in sight!
