November 18th – Isaiah 53:5

Isaiah 53:5

I am thankful that the punishment I deserve, Jesus took upon Himself. 

With the advancement of modern medicine, there are very few wounds that cannot be healed. Except for the wound of death. No doctor, pill, or surgery can resurrect the dead. There is only One who has the power to save. Only One who has conquered death forever. Jesus Christ, the perfect, unblemished, Lamb of God is that One. Our Lord and Savior came to take away the sin of the world and reconcile us back to God. Even though that meant He had to suffer and die for us to live. The Lord knew all He would endure at the hands of the very people He came to redeem. Yet He came anyway. And Jesus did all of this to fulfill the will and plan of the Father, walking in perfect obedience and surrender to Him. And how thankful we are that because He took our punishment, even to the death on a cross, we are healed!
