The servant grew up before God—a scrawny seedling, a scrubby plant in a parched field. There was nothing attractive about him, nothing to cause us to take a second look. He was looked down on and passed over, a man who suffered, who knew pain firsthand. One look at him and people turned away. We looked down on him, thought he was scum. But the fact is, it was our pains he carried— our disfigurements, all the things wrong with us. We thought he brought it on himself, that God was punishing him for his own failures. But it was our sins that did that to him, that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins! He took the punishment, and that made us whole. Through his bruises we get healed. We’re all like sheep who’ve wandered off and gotten lost. We’ve all done our own thing, gone our own way. And God has piled all our sins, everything we’ve done wrong, on him, on him.

God's Plan. You have been created in the the image of God with incredible value and purpose. You are created with an eternal soul that has been corrupted by death and all of us are living far from God's perfect standard of how we need to look after each other. The only way for us to reconnect with God is through the death and resurrection of Jesus. Jesus asks us to turn toward God and seek Him first in everything we do.
