VERSE:
Isaiah 53:5–But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our sins; the chastening for our well-being fell upon Him and by His scourging we are healed.

TRUTH:
This prophecy Isaiah gives referring to Jesus is a strong message that explains the purpose for Jesus’ coming. Jesus came to take the punishment for our wrong doings upon Himself. Because of His wounds we have the payment for our sins. He took it upon Himself so that we would not have to because we would not have been able to withstand the judgment of God. By His wounds we are healed.

RESPONSE:
Father, Your sacrifice is so great that You have provided for all of us. I praise You for all You have sacrificed to make a right relationship with me. Thank You for taking the wounds that I could not so that I may be made right in Your sight.
