Isaiah 53:10-11 GW Yet, it was the LORD'S will to crush him with suffering. When the LORD has made his life a sacrifice for our wrongdoings, he will see his descendants for many days. The will of the LORD will succeed through him. 11 He will see and be satisfied because of his suffering. My righteous servant will acquit many people because of what he has learned through suffering. He will carry their sins as a burden.
Crushed with suffering! The suffering for breaking God’s laws. He suffered for us. Either I am punished, or I accept His substituting for me. The King dies but rises again 3 days later. God’s will is successful, for He wants fellowship with us. We were created for fellowship with Him and to serve Him forever. The greatness of His love for each person is surely noted. Thank Him for a great salvation.
