Isaiah 53:10-11 Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: when thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, he shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, and the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand. He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: by his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; for he shall bear their iniquities.
These are some of the most shocking verses in the Bible to me! It pleased the Lord God of Heaven to bruise Jesus for us. God put Jesus to grief for us! He made His soul an offering for our sin!
The part of the verse that excites me is that He will be satisfied. No matter how much He has suffered. No matter how great the price that He has paid. He will be satisfied.
I know that world evangelism, souls getting saved, and the gospel being preached is very important to the Lord Jesus Christ or He would not have paid such a price. If it is important to Him how can it not be important to me?
That is why I give to missions! He gave His life. I only give a little money and a few years of my life. I want to love Him. I want to see Him satisfied. Don’t you?
I challenge you to get involved in praying for and supporting missionaries. I challenge you to get involved in the greatest work that exists on this planet. That is the work of taking the name of Jesus to the end of the world.
