Jesus Took Our Place

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. (Proverbs 3:6)

Jesus didn’t deserve to be crucified. He didn’t need to go through all that suffering, all that pain. He didn’t have to be humiliated, tortured, killed, and separated from God.

And yet He did. He did it for us. He did it because of us.

He took our place on the Cross so we can go free.

He was punished on our behalf so we can have the peace that He deserved.

He was scourged, beaten, tortured, so we can be perfectly healed.

He was humiliated, so that we can stand in all His glory and authority.

He died, so that we can live.

What is this love, that God is willing to die for man?

What is this power, that the chains of death can be broken?

What is this grace, that the undeserving can be redeemed?

He took our place, so that now we can take His.

His place as God’s beloved child.

His places as the spotless, blameless, and righteous one.

His place in God’s presence.

He has taken our place. Will you now take His?

Be Greatly Blessed!
