“For if, while we were enemies, we were reconciled to God, through the death of his Son, much more being reconciled, shall we be saved by his life.” Romans 5:10
HOPE FOR TODAY!
Jesus, our Lord and Savior has given His life for us, to save us from the whaling and gnashing of teeth that we would otherwise deserve, as all sinners do, and Jesus, to secure our souls so that instead of what we deserved we would have our eternal place with our loving Father!
Now we all know that Jesus died on the cross at Calvary, few would dispute this truth, knowing that all evidence shows that He gave His life as a criminal to some, yet as a Savior to all. Jesus paid the price that man could not pay, there was no other way or means by which we could be saved from eternal damnation, and so Jesus became our sacrifice, our propitiation, and our payment for our sin and the sin of the world!
Now, not only did Jesus give His life that all who believe in Him would be saved, but the manner in which He gave His life saw Him pour out His blood, offering healing to all who are sick, all who are afflicted with disease, and all who are broken, as we read,
“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
See here, Jesus, who gave His life that whosover believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life, as we read in John 3:16, but also to whosoever receiveth Him they shall be completely healed by His stripes! His blood poured out for us is for our healing!
BY HIS LIFE WE ARE SAVED! BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED!
