Isaiah 53:4-11 NIV

Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all. He was oppressed and afflicted, yet he did not open his mouth; he was led like a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so he did not open his mouth. By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished. He was assigned a grave with the wicked, and with the rich in his death, though he had done no violence, nor was any deceit in his mouth. Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.“


The Easter season reminders us of the prophetic fulfillment by prophet Isaiah about Jesus’ death and resurrection. It gives us the foundation of our Christian faith. We believe in Jesus, His death and resurrection and the power of the Holy Spirit. We are reminded of the death of Jesus for our sins. He was wounded and crushed for the sake of all mankind and by His stripes we are healed. We then praise and glorify God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit for His great love. We glorify God for His everlasting mercy upon us having given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, and into an inheritance that can never perish, spoil, or fade kept in heaven for us, who through faith are shielded by God’s power until the coming of the salvation that is ready to be revealed in the last time. In this we greatly rejoice, though now for a little while we may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that our faith of greater worth than gold which perishes even though refined by fire may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. 


How great our Your works Oh Lord. How excellent is Your name Lord Jesus in all the heavens and the earth. You are worthy to be praise and glorified. Hosanna to the Son of David, blessed is He who comes in the name of the Lord, hosanna in the highest heaven. You are worthy to be exulted and adored for You Jesus loves us with unimaginable love that You sacrificed Your life for our lives. You endured pain and suffering for us, what a wonderful God You are. By Your stripes we are healed, may You heal our hearts, wounds, souls and deliver all those who are sick and suffering. You are our Great God; worthy is Your name. May You guide us this week and transform us to be more like You. You died so that we may die to sin and live for righteousness, may Your grace abound in us dear Lord Jesus. May You grant us favor and grace in everything that we do. We worship You and give You praise. In Jesus name we pray. Amen
