The Servant Songs of Isaiah are a beautiful topic for a devotional. Set in the context of Israel's failure, few places in the Old Testament speak so clearly about the merciful Messiah. To quote Henri Blocher, 'In them our Savour found the blueprint of His mission. From them Jesus learned that He would have to suffer for us; that He would die for us, as though He were a criminal, under the weight of our sins. How holy the ground we tread when studying the songs!'
