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. - Isaiah 53:5

 

At the close of another day, I'm reminded of my gracious, benevolent and loving God! With each day comes ups and downs, joys and sorrows, setbacks and set ups. Yet, at the close of the day we conclude, "His mercy endures forever!"

 

How can we be ungrateful when we have received so much? We have so much to be grateful for!

 

Not measured by might or material, but quantified and qualified by mercy. Surely our cup runs over! Isaiah's words invite us to consider the love of God. Love not in words alone but actions. It ought to lead us into loving consistent praise and worship!

 

God in the flesh, wounded, pierced for our sins, transgressions, rebellious acts and crimes. God takes the punishment and is bruised and crushed for our iniquity and evil acts. Only love leads God to make a move like this on behalf of a people like us.

 

We are then told that God submits Himself to be  punished so that we can have peace. Our wholeness is experienced at His great cost! He paid the price ... not us. We have been healed and made whole by the blows he took on our behalf. 

 

And He did all this for you and me........I can't stop praising His name! Jesus!
