Now it was the third hour, and they crucified Him. Mark 15:25
He was wounded because I sinned.
He was bruised because I rebelled.
The chastisement that earned my peace with God was upon Him.
By His stripes I am made whole.
I am exactly like a sheep that gets off track at every opportunity.
But rather than punish me…
God laid that sentence on Jesus Christ.
Good Friday is a difficult day.
It requires that I face the awful price my sin required.
But then Sunday comes.
And I see the face of the Savior who volunteered to pay that price.
