Bible commentary

Wesley's Notes for Isaiah 53:6


53:6 We - All mankind. Astray - From God. Have turned - In general, to the way of sin, which may well be called a man's own way, because sin is natural to us, inherent in us, born with us; and in particular, to those several paths, which several men chuse, according to their different opinions, and circumstances. Hath laid - Heb. hath made to meet, as all the rivers meet in the sea. The iniquity - Not properly, for he knew no sin; but the punishment of iniquity, as that word is frequently used. That which was due for all the sins of all mankind, which must needs be so heavy a load, that if he had not been God as well as man, he must have sunk under the burden.

    We are living in a world that is full of corruption. They have lost there first love and forgot what jesus did for thm on the cross. He was beaten to a blooded pulp for our sins so that we could have life and have it more abundantable. Jesus made a way that we could reach heaven through him as our intercessor. I just want to thank my lord and saviuor jesus christ for loving me more than i love mys

    Isaiah in his distress speaks a very relevant and timely words to a dead nation. We as humans have indeed gone astray, we as believers have indeed left our first love. We have gone astray, turn our backs on the truth. As a sheep without a Sheppard is confused, distress and lack guidance, direction and focus, so is all who result to living without Christ. The very core and essence of our being, a Saviour coming and dying so as sheep, we will have a Sheppard to guide our incompetent minds and hearts to the Father. Everything we could ever do to label us destroyed and dead- He Jesus Christ took on the cross. A true mark for our salvation and survival. Today, most of us do not or cannot stand, live and embrace the truth of our identity. We live us citizens without rights, sons and daughters without parents, body without heads! Isaiah is calling us to reflect and return to the Father of all creations.
