The word of God is dynamic. It inspires action. Isaiah preaches that day after day God opens his ears, suggesting that there is freshness in God's word each day. Moreover, Isaiah is called to use God's word to rouse the people, to get them to act. God's word means to do more than inform or instruct, it is to drive people to act. None of us can honestly say that we are worse off than Jesus was at his death. Emptied of all his divine privileges, obedient to the will of God, humbling himself as a slave, he accepted the abuse, the conviction, and the death sentence. He has been betrayed by one friend, denied by another, and abandoned by the rest. He has no possessions. All he had was the clothes on his back, and even those are taken away. He is humiliated, disgraced, put to shame. He is all alone. No, he is not alone. He knows God has not abandoned him. Nor are any of us alone. No matter how horrible our lot is, we are not alone. Jesus has placed his trust in God and has surrendered to God's will, so throughout the narrative his concern is not with his own fate, but with those of others; his disciples, Peter, the high priest's servant, the women of Jerusalem, the penitent criminal. The word compassion literally means "to suffer with," and in the midst of his greatest suffering Jesus suffers with all these people he encounters on the path to his death. Even on the cross, hours from death, he shows compassion to the criminal who asks for mercy.
