By His Wounds We Are Healed

Our sins leave a mark on us.  Some mark our hearts or our minds, some leave a mark on our bodies and some sins leave long lasting wounds.  These wounds occur because we chase after sinful desires that hurt us and may hurt others.  He took the punishment for our sins…He sacrificed Himself for us because He loves us and we are not capable of saving ourselves.  Jesus Christ suffered, was crucified and died for us and it is by His wounds we are healed.  Amen.

“He himself bore our sins in his body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By his wounds you have been healed.”

1 Peter 2:24

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
