It Please the Lord to Bruise Him

It Please the Lord to Bruise Him

“It pleased the Lord to bruise Him.”  – Isaiah 53:10

    The death of Christ pleased every attribute of the Father.  The death of Christ pleased God’s wisdom. The death of Christ enables God to be both just and justifier.  The death of Christ pleased God’s justice.   Christ suffered for the sin of His people until the debt was paid in full. The death of Christ pleased God’s mercy and grace.  The death of Christ enables God to be merciful to His people in justice because their sin has been put away.  Since Christ died God can justify the ungodly, God can forgive sin, and God can accept His people into His presence because He is pleased with them in Christ.
