Strength For Today

A journey of keeping my heart, mind, and body in TODAY

By His Wounds

on April 19, 2014
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)
He died to set each one of us FREE. Accept His forgiveness today!  It does not matter what you have done or not done in your life!  He wants YOU!  He loves YOU!  He calls out to YOU!  Won’t you let Him in?
It’s as simple as this:  If you want to live in FREEDOM, you must start at the Cross.  Ask Jesus to come into your heart and your life as your Lord and Savior.  Trust that He is who He says He is, and He had done – is doing – and WILL continue to do  all He has promised.  You only need the FAITH of a mustard seed!!!  Jesus can handle the rest!  He waits to hear you pour out your heart in honest confession to Him, and He promises to help you turn away from those old behaviors, and live inTRUE FREDOM.
I looked up cross references to Isaiah 53:5, and this is what I found.  I’ll let the Lord’s Words speak for themselves.

He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification.
1 Corinthians 15:3
For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures
Hebrews 5:8
Son though he was, he learned obedience from what he suffered

so Christ was sacrificed once to take away the sins of many; and he will appear a second time, not to bear sin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for him.
1 Peter 2:24
“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed.”

For “you were like sheep going astray,” but now you have returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.

Psalm 30:2
LORD my God, I called to you for help, and you healed me.

Blows and wounds scrub away evil, and beatings purge the inmost being.
Isaiah 6:7
With it he touched my mouth and said, “See, this has touched your lips; your guilt is taken away and your sin atoned for.”
Isaiah 40:2
Speak tenderly to Jerusalem, and proclaim to her that her hard service has been completed, that her sin has been paid for, that she has received from the LORD’s hand double for all her sins.
Isaiah 53:6
We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

By oppression and judgment he was taken away. Yet who of his generation protested? For he was cut off from the land of the living; for the transgression of my people he was punished.

Yet it was the LORD’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer, and though the LORD makes his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the LORD will prosper in his hand.
Isaiah 53:11
After he has suffered, he will see the light of life and be satisfied; by his knowledge my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.

I have seen their ways, but I will heal them; I will guide them and restore comfort to Israel’s mourners,
