Isaiah 53 is the beautiful prophecy of our Savior and what He has done and continues to do for us. The people in the prophet Isaiah’s day were longing for a savior to bring relief from the struggles and distress of their lives… Today, this prophecy has been fulfilled through Jesus, but some of us are still looking for relief from struggle and strife. Do we understand what kind of a Savior God sent?
A Christian, derived from the Greek word Christianos, is a “little Christ.” Jesus is The Anointed One, and through our transformation in Baptism, we, too, become God’s anointed followers. We inherit the same Spirit to proclaim hope to a broken world.
