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.
It is humbling and truly breath taking to see the weight that Jesus carried for each one of us. How He bore all OUR sorrows, pierced for OUR transgressions and crushed for OUR iniquities. He laid down His life for OUR sinful lives even though we would not be born for another 2,000 years.
So what are we doing with this Earth shattering scripture? It’s impossible to read the words in Isaiah 53 without being moved. To know that Jesus took our place, died our death and suffered all our sufferings! That has to be life altering! Jesus was crucified on my cross!
This week lets allow Jesus to change us. Lets live with the understanding that He died on our cross!
