“As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see it and be satisfied; by His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, as He will bear their iniquities. Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, and He will divide the booty with the strong; because He poured out Himself to death, and was numbered with the transgressors; yet He Himself bore the sin of many, and interceded for the transgressors.” (Isaiah 53:11-12)
What Christ has come to do was foretold clearly in this prophecy. He has come to bear the iniquity of the many and bear for them what they could not do for themselves. Trust in the One who has done for us what needs to be done in order to unite us with Himself for eternity. Know that the One promised has accomplished this and our thanks and praise go to the One who Is, who Was and who Is to come.
Lord, I make it much more complex than it needs to be. Help me see that in You I have all that is needed and that apart from You, there is no hope, nor future. Guide me, I pray, to listen to Your Word and learn from You who has accomplished what needs to be done. Keep me from straying and hold me fast to the never-changing principles that You have laid out from the beginning.
Lord Jesus, You are the One who has taken upon Yourself the sins of us all. Help me to live into the new life You have accomplished for all who believe from the cross. May I be guided by Your example and live a life that is thankful for all the good things You have done. May my life be an offering back to You in gratitude for what You have done for all who believe. May this be carried forth in this day and forever more. Amen.
