“By Jesus’ Wounds We Are Healed!”

“Surely He hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. 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 53:4-5) “He is wounded that we may be healed. He thirsts that we may drink of the water of life. . . He weeps that all tears may be forever wiped from our eyes. He groans that we may sing an endless song. He endures all pain that we may rejoice in unfading health. He wears a crown of thorns that we may receive a crown of glory. He bows His head in death that we may lift up our head in Heaven. . . He dies that we may escape the second death, and live forevermore.”

“O gracious Father, thus You spared not Your only begotten Son that You may spare us! All our sins are cast behind Your back all are buried in the ocean of reconciling blood! We can only fall low and cry, ‘We adore You for the gift of Your Son as our substitute; for the death of Your Son as our ransom!’”                 ~ Henry Law
