We must recognize our own tendency to wander from God by refusing to obey his Word. We must stand in awe of the astonishing humility and obedience of the Suffering Servant, Jesus Christ. We must feel the weight of the abuse he endured and with humble tears acknowledge that it is our sins that produced his sufferings. We must consider his daily pattern of listening to his Father and seek to imitate it. Let’s awaken our ears to listen to God’s words of instruction then seek to live out that wisdom, sharing it with those who are in our spheres of influence with both example and word.
