Sunday Sermon at Yoido Full Gospel Church – Seoul, Korea
Speaker: Rev. Young Hoon Lee, Senior Pastor
A Bruised Reed
Matthew 12:17-21, NIV
This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:
"Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my
Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations.
He will not quarrel or cry out; no one will hear his voice in the streets.
A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out, till he leads
justice to victory.
In his name the nations will put their hope."
People are looking for the God who solves the problems of their lives and brings them
blessings. A true God should be able to solve the fundamental problem of human sin. In
human history, there is no one but Jesus who has solved the problem of sin.
1. A servant in whom God delights (Mt 12:18).
God loved Jesus the Son of God in whom He was most pleased. Jesus was a servant of God
who was obedient to Him. Jesus dwelled in God and always did the work of the Father (Jn
14:10). Those of us who are chosen by God (1Pe 2:9) should become the ones in whom God
delights and whom He loves. In order to do so, we have to realize the will of God and live an
obedient life according to His will (Php 2:7-8; Ro 12:2). In addition, we should be filled with
the Holy Spirit and live a life for the glory of God (Mt 12:18b). Jesus was conceived by the
Holy Spirit. He performed wondrous works with the Holy Spirit (Isa 61:1), He rose from the
dead and ascended to heaven, and He sent us the Holy Spirit (Ac 10:38). When we are filled
with the Holy Spirit, we can become a servant pleasing to God.
2. A servant of gentleness and humility (Mt 12:19).
Jesus is a servant of gentleness and humility. He never argued and shouted because of
anger (Isa 53:2). Gentleness and humility are the character of Jesus (Mt 11:29) Since Jesus
was humble, He entered Jerusalem on a donkey (Mt 21:5). Moreover, He did not quarrel or
raise His voice to exalt himself in any circumstance. We should imitate Jesus and become
people of gentleness and humility. No one is greater than the one who is gentle and humble.
I hope you show the image of Jesus in your life through gentleness and humility (Mic 6:8).
3. A servant of love and mercy (Mt 12:20).
Jesus is the God of love and mercy who does not break a bruised reed. “A bruised reed”
signifies wounded human beings who are incapable and hopeless. We are like a bruised reed
that is so weak, always shaken by the wind, wounded, and easily broken. Jesus loves
humanity immeasurably and has mercy on them. He heals the sick and strengthens and
upholds the weak (Mt 9:35). He carries our heavy burdens, comforts our wounded hearts,
and fills us with good things.
Jesus is with us now. He embraces us with gentleness and humility and restores us with His
love and mercy. I pray that all of you may look to Jesus our Savior and mature so that you
can bear the fruit of character, be filled with the joy of the Lord in your life, and bring great
glory to Him.
