The Suffering Servant

Series: The Promise of Isaiah

October 29, 2023 | Paul Joslin

Passage: Isaiah 53:1-12

Isaiah 53 draws us into a vivid prophetic portrayal of a suffering servant whose sacrificial journey brings spiritual healing and redemption to humanity.

Where are you? What are you going through? If you are asking why God is taking so long to fix things or you’re hanging on by a thread, remember there is a God named Jesus, who saw the suffering of the world and didn’t abandon us, but stepped in so that by his wounds, our wounds will be healed.
