By His Wounds We Are Healed

But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 NIV)

Jesus experienced the most excruciating pain possible because of us, yet “by His wounds we are healed.” How can we be the cause of someone’s pain and still find healing through it? Listen to today’s passage from The Message Bible: “But it was our sins that did that to him, that ripped and tore and crushed him—our sins! He took the punishment, and that made us whole. Through his bruises we get healed.

So many people are hurting and in need of healing right now. And who better to understand our pain than the One who experienced the most agonizing pain on our behalf? Jesus. His wounds are still healing us. We don’t have to hurt anymore because He was already broken for us. Thank You, Jesus!
