He Was Wounded For Our Sins

Read

 Isaiah 53:4-6 (NET)

But He lifted up our illnesses, He carried our pain; even though we thought He was being punished, attacked by God, and afflicted for something He had done.

He was wounded because of our rebellious deeds, crushed because of our sins; He endured punishment that made us well; because of His wounds we have been healed.

All of us had wandered off like sheep; each of us had strayed off on His own path, but the Lord caused the sin of all of us to attack Him.

  Reflect

Slowly re-read the scripture. Think about it and how it applies to you.

Respond

Respond to the Lord in thankfulness for His sacrificial death for our sins.

Rest

Finally, simply rest in the Word of God and in His presence. Abide in the Lord and allow Him to abide in you by and through His Word.
