Isaiah 53:5

by | Sat, Nov 19 2022

But He was pierced because of our transgressions, crushed because of our iniquities; punishment for our peace was on Him, and we are healed by His wounds. Isaiah 53:5

Will shares some thoughts on this passage…

Long before Jesus was born, Isaiah wrote about the One who was coming to save God’s people. This verse falls in the middle of a section where Isaiah talks of the suffering the one God sends will face.

I can glibly say Jesus died for my sins, and I was set free by Him, but neglect to reflect on the price that Jesus actually paid for me. The act of communion, sharing around the Lord’s table is a time when we can recall the events of Easter that were for us. The nails pierced His hands and feet, and the spear pierced His side. Thomas got to place his hands in those wounds but we only visualise them in our minds.

While I reflect on these atrocities, a peace rises in me, knowing that the Father, my Father loved me so much that He allowed Jesus to suffer this for me, that He opened the door to a relationship unhindered by any sin. A peace unlike any other, a fullness of joy and healing of body, soul and spirit.
