Multitude Monday and its’ Menu Musings

holy experience

“All God’s plans have the mark of the cross on them, and all His plans have death to self in them.”

-E.M. Bounds

*The Fount

*of every blessing

*come for us

*man of sorrows

*our weakness HE carried

*HE was pierced for our transgressions

*HE was crushed for our sins

*HE was beaten so we could be whole

*HE was whipped so we could be healed

*the sin of us all laid on HIM

*HE was led like a lamb

*HE did not open His mouth

*HE was struck down for mankind’s rebellion

*HE had done no wrong

*HE had never deceived anyone

*the Lord’s good plan to crush HIM

*the Lord’s good plan will prosper

*because of HIS experience

*it is possible

*for many

*to be counted righteous

*for HE bore all our sin

(This weeks’ gratitude based on Isaiah 52-53)
