Discussion for Isaiah 53

    We are the ones who have been put on tht cross I love u lord and am great full for every thing u have did for me.
  • Ernestina Francois
    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.
