Sharing His Love
A reflection for Wednesday of Holy Week from Bill MacKenzie
Isaiah 50 verses 4 to 9a
The Sovereign Lord has given me a well-instructed tongue,
to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning,
wakens my ear to listen like one being taught.
The Sovereign Lord has opened my ears;
I have not been rebellious,
I have not drawn back.
I offered my back to those who beat me,
my cheeks to those who pull out my beard;
I did not hide my face
from mocking and spitting.
Because the Sovereign Lord helps me,
I will not be disgraced.
Therefore have I set my face like flint
and I know I will not be put to shame.
He who vindicates me is near.
Who then will bring charges against me?
Let us face each other!
Who is my accuser?
Let him confront me!
It is the Sovereign Lord who helps me.
Who is he who will condemn me?
