faith in the furnace

Geoffrey T. Bull in The City and the Sign:

The Suffering-Servant, co-equal, though He be with God, endures the agony as man. He does not marshal legions from the sky. He rests in God alone, the only One who can deliver; and by such trusting, breaks the bounds of desolation. His innocence is genuine. With confidence He waits the final vindication.

The Judge of all the earth, He must do right; so now beneath the maelstrom of God’s wrath, He dares to look for heaven and home. All joy is there. With that in view He finds the strength to tread down shame and go right through to God’s righthand.
