Isaiah 53 & Good Friday

by Jason Moore on April 2, 2010

Let us not forget what our Lord has done for us. Not today, and not tomorrow.

For without His propitiation, we have no hope. Without the Father sending the Son to atone for the sins of His people, we have no place with God. Jesus bore the sins of His people against the wrath of almighty God, so that you and I would have forgiveness for our wretchedness. Who killed Jesus? God did. Praise our Lord for His sacrifice – to His Glory.

I could have never paid the price; and neither could you. Meditate on these words and give thanks to the one who is deserving of all thanksgiving and praise. If you’ve never thought of this, please do. Take the time for what is more important than your soul? You say ‘Only God can judge me?” – Then how will you ever present, much less win your case ( Romans 6:23, Romans 3:23)? Repent and turn from your sins to the only one who can save you (Romans 5:8). Confess and submit to Christ as Lord (Romans 10:9-10). Not sure what that means? Contact us through the menu at the top. Today we worship for what was done, and on Sunday we will worship our King’s victory!

Isaiah 53

Who has believed what they heard from us? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed? – Isa 53:1 ESV
For he grew up before him like a young plant, and like a root out of dry ground; he had no form or majesty that we should look at him, and no beauty that we should desire him. – Isa 53:2 ESV
He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces he was despised, and we esteemed him not. – Isa 53:3 ESV
Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. – Isa 53:4 ESV
But he was wounded for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his stripes we are healed. – Isa 53:5 ESV
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. – Isa 53:6 ESV
He was oppressed, and he was afflicted, yet he opened not his mouth; like a lamb that is led to the slaughter, and like a sheep that before its shearers is silent, so he opened not his mouth. – Isa 53:7 ESV
By oppression and judgment he was taken away; and as for his generation, who considered that he was cut off out of the land of the living, stricken for the transgression of my people? – Isa 53:8 ESV
And they made his grave with the wicked and with a rich man in his death, although he had done no violence, and there was no deceit in his mouth. – Isa 53:9 ESV
Yet it was the will of the Lord to crush him; he has put him to grief; when his soul makes an offering for sin, he shall see his offspring; he shall prolong his days; the will of the Lord shall prosper in his hand. – Isa 53:10 ESV
Out of the anguish of his soul he shall see and be satisfied; by his knowledge shall the righteous one, my servant, make many to be accounted righteous, and he shall bear their iniquities. – Isa 53:11 ESV
Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors. – Isa 53:12 ESV
