Message Outline


INTRODUCTON


Opening Verse - Isaiah 53:6-12


Highlighting Verses - 6, 10, 11, 12



THE SUBSTITUTIONARY DEATH OF CHRIST. THE ONLY PATH TO SALVATION.



THE CONDITION OF HUMANITY


Verse - 1 Peter 2:21-25


From Isaiah and 1st Peter that God is speaking to the condition of all of humanity. That condition being we have all gone astray. We are all born into a state of rebellion, going our own way, serving self, serving and bound to sin.


Verse - Ecclesiastes 7:20, Romans 3:23 , Hebrews 2:15


Job, Jeremiah, Romans, and Galatians – humanity described as – full of trouble, unclean, deceitful, sick, not righteous, doesn’t seek God, having sinned, fallen short of God’s glory, imprisoned under sin.


Verse - 1 John 1:8


God has given us the answer to the problem.



THE ANSWER IS JESUS. JESUS BORE OUR SIN.


God laid upon Christ the iniquity of us all. He was made an offering for sin. He bore our sin. The reason is He became our substitute and took upon Himself what you and I deserved.


Verse - 2 Corinthians 5:21 God made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.


Jesus was punished and made guilty, that the guilty might be blessed and be made innocent.


God has made a plan of freedom.


Verses - Psalm 103:12, Micah 7:19

God laid our sin upon Christ so that He could separate us from our sin for eternity and so that we would not have to carry it. But the removal of sin goes beyond just the activities that we think of sin. God wants to set us free from sin.


Verses - Romans 6:6, Ephesians 4:22-24


We had to die, but we couldn’t even die in our strength. God had to bring death to our lives. Which is what happens by way of our substitute, Jesus, so that the body of sin (that old man) might be destroyed (killed and put in a grave) and so that we can be raised up as a new creation and filled with (renewed) with the Spirit of Christ.


We are in full and complete dependence upon Him, even for our daily walk as a Christian.



THERE IS NO OTHER WAY. JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY TO BE SAVED.


Verse - Romans 3:20


Hebrews 11:6 And without faith it is impossible to please God. - The only way to please God is through faith, works/activities… are not the way to please God)


Salvation must be by faith, it must be an activity of faith, or it does not please God. Being perfect is not enough, works is dependence upon self (faith in self) and not faith in God. God responds to faith.


Verses - Romans 5:1, Romans 10:10, Ephesians 2:8-9


Verse - Galatians 2:21 - If righteousness/salvation could come through the law, or keeping the law perfectly, then Christ died for no reason.


Example of Paul – Verse Philippians 3:8-9



BACK TO ISAIAH 53. JESUS THE SERVANT OF THE LORD.


Verse 7 - Opening not His mouth speaks His willingness to die for sinners; it also marks His dignity and authority. Notice, he wasn’t silent because He was weak. He was silent because He was in a place of submission to His Father.


Verse - 1 Peter 2:23


Application – How do we respond when unfairly treated, judged, suffering?



Verses 8-9 - The prophet brings the point home again and again. The Servant of the LORD, the Messiah, Jesus suffers, not for Himself, but for sins of the people.


Jesus died in the company of the wicked, and it was the intention of those overseeing His execution to cast Him into a common grave with the wicked. Prophecy of what would happen - God foretold us that Jesus would be buried in the tomb of the wealthy - Joseph of Arimathea.


The phrase because He had done no violence, nor was any deceit in His mouth is significant. It shows that even in His death, Jesus never sinned. As recognition of that, He was buried with the rich at His death.



Verse 10 - This was God’s doing! God put Him to grief! Jesus was not a victim of circumstance or just at the wrong place at the wrong time. Everything was planned by God and prophesied by Isaiah hundreds of years before it happened. It all was set in place perfectly.


Verses - Revelation 13:8, Ephesians 1:3-5



Verse 11 - Jesus will look upon His work and in the end, He shall be satisfied. The Messiah will have no regrets. Every bit of the suffering and agony was worth it.


Verse - Hebrews 12:2



CONCLUSION


Verse 12 - Jesus wonderful work will be rewarded. Why?

-He poured out His soul to death

-He was numbered with the transgressors

-He bore the sin of many

-He made intercession for the transgressors


Paul’s Description: Verse - Philippians 2:5-11
