“He was led as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before its shearers is silent, so He opened not His mouth.” Isaiah 53:7 Jesus told His followers that no one could take His life from Him – He would lay it down willingly. This heart of voluntary surrender was prophesied by Isaiah. Christ’s lamblike self-sacrifice is a grand indicator of His powerful love. “Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends.” John 15:13 Think of it, Jesus loved you that much! The nail-pierced hands of Jesus reveal the love-filled heart of God.
