(Completely sinless and pure, Jesus was wounded,
pierced by the thorns on His Head,
by the nails that fastened Him to the wooden beams,
and by the tip of the soldier's spear
who was ascertaining whether Jesus had breathed His last.
our transgressions against a Holy and Righteous God
and were part of the appeasement of the wrath of a just God
against sin and its effects on mankind.
in preparation for offering it up as a sin sacrifice,
and release us from the death that we deserved.)
He was crushed for our iniquities;
of carrying the sins of mankind
and of what was happening physically to Jesus,
the prophet Isaiah puts into words the crushing of the Lord,
of Him being broken and wounded as He Himself took on our punishment.
I have two sons whom I would not sacrifice for the "best" of us,
and so to appease the righteousness of a just and loving God.)
May the Lord richly bless you this day!
In Christ's love,
