“The Lord says, “It was my plan to crush him and cause him to suffer. I made his life a guilt offering to pay for sin. But he will see all of his children after him. In fact, he will continue to live. My plan will be brought about through him.” (Isaiah 53:10 NIRV)
“After he suffers, he will see the light that leads to life. And he will be satisfied. My godly servant will make many people godly because of what he will accomplish. He will be punished for their sins.” (Isaiah 53:11 NIRV)
“So I will give him a place of honor among those who are great. He will be rewarded just like others who win the battle. That is because he was willing to give his life as a sacrifice. He was counted among those who had committed crimes. He took the sins of many people on himself. And he gave his life for those who had done what is wrong.” (Isaiah 53:12 NIRV)
Whoa! Thank you Jesus for Your ultimate sacrifice for us! Let us also without wavering give all our highest praise and worship to Jesus Christ our Lord, for He alone is worthy! Let us devote all the days of our lives to Him and serve Him alone!
One of the ways to show our devotion is to follow His servant example! May you and I open our lives to Him today and together with all those whose lives He touched, worship and gratefully serve Him. Amen!
