Isaiah 53:10 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.
God loves us so much. Jesus loves us so much. Jesus offers Himself as our substitute. He takes our place and receives our punishment. God is pleased to see all this happen.
God allows Jesus to bear all of our punishment. Jesus is bruised for us. Jesus suffers from our grief. Jesus offers Himself as an offering for our sin. God is pleased because He purchases our sin this way.
Have you ever heard of a God like our God? Is there another that takes the sin and suffering of His servants on Himself. He makes a way of salvation. He becomes that way. If you are not saved then today you must trust Jesus to give you forgiveness and new life.
