His Sacrifice, was Our gain…

12 Jan


Isaiah 53:5, But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

The above scripture found in the book of Isaiah, is perhaps One of the most important scriptures that every Disciple of Christ should know. The Prophet Isaiah is speaking about the coming Messiah Jesus Christ and just what He would do for all of Mankind through His death. Describing just what the wages Our Sin would do to His mortal body. “He was wounded for Our transgressions,” relates to the Cross and just how The Lord would die by Crucifixion.

“He was bruised for Our iniquities,” states what He suffered was not for Himself but for all of Us, The wages of sin is death (Romans 6:23) which had to be paid for the remission of Sin. “The chastisement of Our peace was upon Him,” refers to being made right in the eyes of God. Before the Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ, all of Mankind was in eternal debt to God who could not dwell with man due to the sin nature that inhabited His body. As was in the Old Testament of The Holy Bible, the blood shed on altars from animals could not atone for just how deep sin had infected Our being. God in His Grace and Mercy sent The Christ to die instead, to cover Us so that His Holy Spirit could dwell in all who believe by simply placing Their Faith in Jesus Christ and Him Crucified.

“And with His stripes We are healed,” pertains to physical healing but more so Spiritual Healing. By allowing the will of God to operate totally in Our Spirit, Mind and Bodies. The over coming of sin is by no means and easy task. No man can on His own, no matter how wealthy or knowledgeable that He is can make Himself right by any means, other than the Cross of Jesus Christ. Sin had to be overcome by God Himself, due to the fact that the price was Spiritual and to big for anyone to pay. I take joy in Isaiah 53:5, knowing that God cared enough for Me to send His Son Jesus to die, so that We all can be healed. Shalom…
