Isa. 53, 12b

…and he was numbered with the transgressors; and he bare the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.

Authorized Version

I.

To redeem us our Lord bore our sins in his own body on the tree, died for us that he might win our love and save us.  All of this despite our sins, our unloveliness, our unworthiness.  Love led him to Calvary.

II.

He prayed for the transgressor, for those who crucified him.  “Father, forgive them; they know not what they do.”  He undertook for them.

Hence sinners have another chance as we seek pardon in his name and long to live righteous lives.

How very much we owe to his intercession for us!

III.

Jesus set us an example that we should follow.  We, too, should intercede for others, pray that they may be led to Christ for saving power.  Thereby many have been prevailed upon to come to him.  “The effected fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.”

Take somebody on your heart and pray for them.  What a privilege it is is.  God will use your prayers for his good.
