Application for Oct 13,14, 2012 :: Isaiah 53:4-5


Isaiah 53:4-5

and with his wounds we are healed.


Here is the Gospel, and it is very understandable on this side of history. We can thank God for this, because I can’t imagine how confusing it must have been for the Jews before Jesus to read this passage. How could these things be, they must have thought.

Who was this person who would bear our griefs and carry our sorrows?
How would God smite him?
What does my transgressions or iniquities have to do with him?
And then how would the violence done to him be made to give us peace?
And how is he going to heal us?

But now we know: Jesus did all of this for us. All of it. Thank God. Thank and Glorify and Worship and Obey God.
