Isaiah 53:6 NLT
“All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own. Yet the LORD laid on Him the sins of us all.”
Series: The Book of Isaiah
The name of Jesus is one hope giving, life giving and protecting name that we can always run to. The bible says that it is the one name which is the strong tower over our lives and yet so often we get lost in our lives.
Jesus spoke about the parable of the shepherd who had 100 sheep and one of the sheep gets lost, and how the shepherd leaves the 99 sheep back and goes after in search of the one lost sheep.
Isaiah 53:6 says every one of us are strayed away.
God’s foiled the purpose, the dream and plan that He had for our lives, because we strayed away, and hurt God, but we are like that one lost sheep for whom Jesus comes down to save.
The bible says Jesus came down on to the earth to die on the cross 2000 years ago. From the beginning He came announcing His death, He came declaring that He is going to be the Emmanuel and Saviour, the Lamb of God who’s going to be slain for the sins of the whole world.
Isaiah 53:6 says Yet the LORD laid on Him the sins of us all.
What was our sin? Our sin is not particularly a lie, adultery, stealing money or cheating someone but it is that we have strayed away from God and followed our own paths, desires and dreams. And God says that was a sin.
So God had to come up with the solution. So that’s why God took all of our sins and laid it upon Jesus who came for us. All of our past, present and future straying away, our rebellion, self ambition and self desires that we wanted, God took all of them and placed it upon Jesus and because He placed it on Jesus we are free of the burden of sins.
All that we have to do today is to accept Him as the Master of our lives.
When Jesus purchased us from the cross by shedding His blood, He owns everything of us.
Are you willing to say yes to Him this morning?
