“…Did you not know that I must be about My Father’s business” (Luke 2:49, NKJV). Our attitude must be the same. “We must quickly carryout the tasks assigned us by the one who sent us. The night is coming, and then no one can work” (John 9:4, NLT). “…My grace is sufficient for you…” (2 Cor 12:9, NRSV). “…By the grace of God I am what I am, and His grace toward me has not been in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them—though it was not [me], but the grace of God that is with me” (1 Cor 15:10, NRSV).

“My servant grew up in the Lord’s presence like a tender, green shoot, like a root in dry ground. There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance… to attract us to him. He was despised and rejected—a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way; …we did not care” (Isa 53:2-3, NLT). “The Lord, the Redeemer and the Holy One of Israel, says to the one who is despised and rejected by the nations…, ‘Kings will stand at attention when you pass by.

This Lamb “…emptied Himself, taking the form of a… servant, and …becoming obedient to… death on a cross” (Php 2:7-8, NASB). “[And] the message of the cross is… to us who are being saved… the power of God” (1 Cor 1:18).

For you are all children of God through faith in Christ Jesus” (Gal 3:24-26, NLT). “…Whatever the law says, it says to those who are under the law that… all the world may become guilty before God. …By the deeds of the law no flesh will be justified in His sight, for by the law is the knowledge of sin.
