Surely He has borne our grief and carried our sorrows; Yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted for our transgressions. He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone, to his own way; And the LORD has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
(Isaiah 53:4-6)

Bible Verses: Isaiah 53:1-12; Matthew 27:1-61; Acts; 3:1-26

Today I would like to introduce to you the most important Person in this world and His name is Jesus. Isaiah prophesied concerning the coming of Jesus Christ into this world and how He would deliver and redeem mankind from every power of the devil. All the grief and sorrow which we were subjected to by the devil were all taken by the LORD Jesus Christ when He suffered death of the Cross over two thousand years ago. Because of ignorance, many people today continue to carry their grief, sorrows and pain which are a result of their separation from God. This is because no one has yet introduced them to someone who sacrificed His life for them. You may be among that group of people who continue to suffer from grief, sorrow or pain. The Good News is that Jesus Christ the only Son of the living God has already paid a price for all your problems irrespective of the magnitude. Today He is inviting you to off load all your burdens upon Him. Grief includes sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses. You may be asking why and how He carried all these afflictions. He did it because His Father, God Almighty, loves us even when we, all like sheep have gone astray; each one in his own way. In John 3:16-17, Jesus actually says, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world through Him might be saved.” The LORD Jesus Christ also invites all those who are suffering from every form of problem when He says, “Come to Me, all you who labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28). Also according to Acts 10:38, “…God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him.” Let it be known to you that Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever. He cares for you and He would like your suffering, grieving, sorrow, sicknesses and all afflictions to come to an end. He already paid for all that when He suffered death of the Cross. He wants to distinguish you for the glory life. Alleluia!

Thank You LORD Jesus Christ for taking care of all my grief, sorrows, transgressions and sins. I confess all my sins and weaknesses and I ask that You forgive me and distinguish me for the glory life. In Jesus’ mighty name I pray.
