    In biblical times, a faithful servant was trained to watch his master's hand and mouth. If the master wanted to communicate a request or command, he often would signal for this with his hand or speak a short order.

    The faithful servant did not want to miss any command, request, or statement from his master. Therefore, his eyes and ears were looking and listening with anticipation. In this way, he waited upon his master.

    Is Jesus your Lord and Master? If so, then your deepest desire is to wait upon Him with anticipation. Are you looking and listening for Him in your life? Is the fact of your poor servanthood a burden to you?

Jesus Christ is the one and only Mediator between a holy God and sinful people. He is God and man in one sinless Person. He bears numerous precious names.

Is He your Mediator and Savior? Do you love His names Jesus, Christ, Son of man, and Son of God? Do you honor and serve Him as your Lord?

All of Scripture points to this Mediator - Jesus Christ. The Old Testament is full of prophecy and the New Testament, of fulfillment regarding Him. The chart on the following page provides some examples of this truth.

Jesus Christ is the central theme of the Scriptures; is He the center of your life?


Behold, as the eyes of servants look unto the hand of their masters, and as the eyes of a maiden unto the hand of her mistress; so our eyes wait upon the LORD our God, until that He have mercy on us.

- Psalm 123:2

Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and He shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

- Psalm 27:14



Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven, given among men, whereby we must be saved.

- Acts 4:12

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon His shoulder: and His name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

- Isaiah 9:6

Yea doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of all things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ.

- Philippians 3:8
