Poured Out

Poured Out

Christ poured out for the church:

“Therefore I will divide him a portion with the many, and he shall divide the spoil with the strong, because he poured out his soul to death and was numbered with the transgressors; yet he bore the sin of many, and makes intercession for the transgressors.”  (Isaiah 53:12 ESV)

“And he said to them, “This is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many.”  (Mark 14:24 ESV)

The Holy Spirit poured out upon the church:

“Being therefore exalted at the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, he has poured out this that you yourselves are seeing and hearing … And the believers from among the circumcised who had come with Peter were amazed, because the gift of the Holy Spirit was poured out even on the Gentiles.”  (Acts 2:33; 10:45 ESV)

We are poured out as we take up our crosses to follow Christ:

“Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all.” … “For I am already being poured out as a drink offering, and the time of my departure has come.”  (Philippians 2:17; 2 Timothy 4:6 ESV)

The Father poured out His wrath on Jesus, that He might pour out His Spirit on us, that we might, ourselves, be poured out for His glory.
