sorry about missing a few days on the devotionals!!

i'm listening to a sara groves cd right now, i love her. i've always identified with the things she says in her songs.

today, her song "you did that for me" really touched me deeply. i began writing out the lyrics, and thought they would be good to use in today's devotional. then i thought "i need a bible verse, too" and the first thing that came to mind, was the verse that mentions christ being "bruised for our iniquities" . . . so i looked up that verse on blue letter bible, and how cool -- it turns out that the song "you did that for me" references the same verses i looked up! 

 

 

 

Isaiah 53 (NASB)

Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?

 

For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, And like a root out of parched ground; He has no {stately} form or majesty That we should look upon Him, Nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.

 

He was despised and forsaken of men, A man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.  Surely our griefs He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.

 

But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being {fell} upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed.

 

All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him.

 

He was oppressed and He was afflicted, Yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, And like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, So He did not open His mouth.  By oppression and judgment He was taken away; And as for His generation, who considered That He was cut off out of the land of the living For the transgression of my people, to whom the stroke {was due?}

 

His grave was assigned with wicked men, Yet He was with a rich man in His death, Because He had done no violence, Nor was there any deceit in His mouth.

 

But the LORD was pleased To crush Him, putting {Him} to grief; If He would render Himself {as} a guilt offering, He will see {His} offspring, He will prolong {His} days, And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand.

 

As a result of the anguish of His soul, He will see {it and} be satisfied; By His knowledge the Righteous One, My Servant, will justify the many, As He will bear their iniquities.

 

Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great, And He will divide the booty with the strong; Because He poured out Himself to death, And was numbered with the transgressors; Yet He Himself bore the sin of many, And interceded for the transgressors.

 

You did that for me – Sara Groves

 

Don’t have to cry anymore

Don’t have to worry about what’s in store

I’ve walked that road, exhausted and poor

Don’t have to cry anymore

 

Don’t have to know it all

Don’t have to be so proud and stand so tall

I’ve climbed that mountain, only to fall

Don’t have to know it all

 

You did that for me

Oh, you did that for me

You wore the chains so I could be free

You did that for me

 

Don’t have to be ashamed

Hang my head and shoulder the blame

Wondering if my life’s been in vain

Don’t have to be ashamed

 

You did that for me

Oh, you did that for me

You wore the chains so I could be free

You did that for me

 

Man of sorrows, well acquainted with grief

Drug down to the city dump, spread eagle on a cross-peak

Propped up like a scarecrow, nailed like a theif

There for all the world to see

 

You did that for me

Oh, you did that for me

You wore the chains so I could be free

You did that for me
