Day 26

Read Isaiah 52:13-53:12

Some 700 years before Christ came, God spoke through the prophet Isaiah about His servant, a “man of sorrows” that would bear our sin. Long before we ever existed God had a plan to save us from our sins.

Reflection: What does this say about the gravity of sin and the lengths God was willing to go to reconcile sinners to Himself? How might this fuel your worship?

Prayer Point: Give thanks that Christ was nailed to a cross, that he was wounded for our transgressions and crushed for our iniquities.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: The Sun Stops Shining

Reflection: Jesus had a lot of power–all of God’s power! But Jesus didn’t use that power to save himself from the cross. Why? What made Jesus want to die for us?

Prayer Point: Give thanks to Jesus that he loved us so much that he would die for us.
