He was Cut Off From the Land of the Living

Read

  Isaiah 53: 7-9 (NET)

He was treated harshly and afflicted, but He did not even open His mouth. Like a lamb led to the slaughtering block, like a sheep silent before her shearers, He did not even open His mouth.

He was led away after an unjust trial — but who even cared? Indeed, He was cut off from the land of the living; because of the rebellion of His own people He was wounded.

They intended to bury Him with criminals, but He ended up in a rich man’s tomb, because He had committed no violent deeds, nor had He spoken deceitfully.

Reflect

Slowly re-read the scripture. Think about it and how it applies to you.

Respond

Respond to the Lord in thankfulness for His sacrificial death for our sins.

Rest

Finally, simply rest in the Word of God and in His presence. Abide in the Lord and allow Him to abide in you by and through His Word.
