[Delivered about 12/10.]
This short study also made use of the book by Oxenden mentioned in the previous post.
Read Isaiah 53:7 along with the Luke 22:39-46 account of Jesus Christ's praying in the Garden of Gethsemane before being arrested.
Because Christ stood condemned in the place of guilty sinners, He did not complain against those who tormented Him.
Questions to ask yourself: (1) Does thinking of what Jesus Christ suffered give you some idea of how evil a thing sin is? (2) Am I trusting Jesus Christ only for salvation?
Resolve as a Christian to take comfort in the sufferings of Christ - due to His suffering for sinners, no evil of this life can separate the Christian from God's love.
