“He shall see of the travail of his soul, and shall be satisfied: By his knowledge shall my righteous servant justify many; For he shall bear their iniquities” (Isa. 53:11).
The justice of God was satisfied by the vicarious sacrifice of Christ on the cross (cf. Rom. 3:23-26). God is just and so Christ offered Himself as the atonement (propitiation) for our sins to appease God’s wrath (cf. Zeph. 3:5; 1 John 2:1-2; 1 John 4:10; John 10:10-18).
In order for one to be justified they must have knowledge of the Suffering Servant and His teachings (cf. John 6:44-45; Matt. 11:28-30; Rom. 10:13-17; 1 Cor. 15:1-8; Titus 2:11-14). This places great emphasis on our responsibility to get the Gospel message out (cf. Matt. 28:18-20; Mark 16:15-16; Luke 24:46-47)!
“There’s a message true and glad for the sinful and the sad, ring it out!”
