Isaiah 53:12

Therefore will I divide him a portion with the great, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong; because he hath poured out his soul unto death: and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Isaiah 53:12

We end Isaiah 53 with this great verse that glorifies and magnifies the Lord Jesus Christ.  He did “pour out his soul unto death.” (for me)  He was “numbered with the transgressors.” (including me) He did “bear the sins of many.” (including me)  And he does make intercession for the transgressors.”  (that includes me too)  This verse reminds me of a passage in the New Testament:

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus:

Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God:

 But made himself of no reputation,and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men:

And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:

That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;

And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Philippians 2:5-11

Jesus humbled Himself.  He came to earth, walked among me, and lived a sinless, perfect life.  He died on a cross, bearing my sins and yours.  He was buried in a borrowed tomb.  And, three days later, he rose from the dead.  And now God has highly exalted Him.  His name is above every other name.  He is the Saviour.  He is my Saviour!
