Pierced. Crushed. Chastised. This is violence of the highest level, but Jesus endured it on the cross so that we could be reconciled to God.

Our sins have a price, and Jesus paid it in full. Jesus took on our rightful punishment as sinners, so we could have peace with God. Jesus was brutalised by the very ones He came to save, so that through Him we might receive spiritual healing — the gift of eternal life

“Thank you, Jesus, for dying for me.” As you declare aloud these words of thanksgiving and faith, how will you let them affect your thoughts, words and deeds today?
