He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many…
Consider the title that Christ gets in these words.
I. He is called the Lord's SERVANT. It looks to Him as Mediator. It imports —
1. A humiliation and inferiority in respect of God (Philippians 2).
2. His prerogative as being singularly and eminently God's Servant.
3. The particular task or work that is laid on Him, and the commission that He hath got to prosecute that work.
4. That our Lord Jesus, in performing the work of redemption, cannot but be acceptable to Jehovah, because it is a performing of that with which He hath entrusted Him.
II. He is called the Lord's RIGHTEOUS SERVANT. He is all excellent Servant; not righteous simply as He is God, nor as He is man, but righteous in the administration of His offices, and in the discharge of the great trust committed to Him. He administrates His offices —
1. Wonderfully wisely.
2. Very tenderly.
3. Most diligently and effectually.
4. With all faithfulness.
