HE DID IT FOR US
“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 KJV
Philip Paul Bliss wrote one of my favorite hymns “Hallelujah! What a Savior”. “Bearing shame and scoffing rude, In my place condemned He stood; Sealed my pardon with His blood. Hallelujah! What a Savior!” Jesus loves you so much He took your place and died for your sins.
Yes, Jesus did it for us. He allowed them to spit on Him, curse Him, mock Him, and beat Him beyond recognition. Why did He allow them to do all these things to Him when He had never done anything wrong? He did it because He loves you and He loves me. He is a tender compassionate Saviour.
If you ever doubt you are loved, remember the cross and the agony and pain that Jesus endured because He loves you so much. Please join me in praising the “KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS”. One glorious happy day, I will see my precious Saviour face to face. How I long for that day!
