#whois:God? #suffering_servant
‘… it was our weaknesses he carried, it was our sorrows that weighed him down: And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins! But he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. 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. Isaiah 53: 4-6

How mind-blowing is this passage? Does your idea of God include someone who would willingly be crushed and beaten so we could be released from the consequences of our rebellion? If you can, read the whole passage from 52:13-53:12 and let it sit with you today #andrewv
