“Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit” God said through the prophet Zechariah. So does Isaiah describe God’s Servant in chapter 42nd of the book that bears his name. This prophecy points forward to Jesus who is the fulfillment. Matthew, in his recording of the baptism of Jesus, makes sure we understand that Jesus is indeed God’s Servant. As we look at Jesus’ ministry, it should be no surprise then, that we see he works by the Spirit of God and not by might or power of the world. It is a ministry of grace.
