Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise Him

Yet it pleased the LORD to bruise him; he hath put him to grief: When thou shalt make his soul an offering for sin, He shall see his seed, he shall prolong his days, And the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in his hand (Isaiah 53:10 KJV)

Isaiah, the prophet graced with astonishing prophecies about the Messiah, spoke about Jesus’ sufferings in Isaiah 53. He said it pleased the Father to bruise Christ and put Him to grief. The Father made Christ’s soul, that is, His very life, an offering for sin.

It pleased the Father to allow Christ to suffer and be grieved for people who were not deserving of it.  Does this mean the Father was very happy to cause Christ to suffer? The answer is no! He was pleased to bruise the Christ because His pleasure of seeing us become children of God would only be fulfilled by Christ’s soul being made an offering for sin through His sacrificial death on the cross. The last part of the verse above says, “the pleasure of the LORD shall prosper in His hand.” What pleasure? Not Christ’s sufferings, but the grace of adoption of children that will be poured out upon sinners and rebels, that is, you and me.

Your salvation is free, but it was not cheap. Forgiveness from God appears to be one of the easiest things to obtain from God today, but it was the most difficult for God to provide. You are blessed in Christ. Rejoice and trust in your Savior!


What does it mean that Christ’s soul was made an offering for sin?


The Father was pleased to put Christ to grief because He wanted you and me to be rescued from hell and spend eternity in fellowship with Him as His children. You are God’s purpose, and pleasure in Christ fulfilled. Be grateful for your salvation. Always remember Christ’s sufferings and death for you. And as you do, tell Him “thankYou” always.


Thank the Father for the sacrificial offering of Christ so that we would be saved.
