Scars of Wisdom

He was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; by His wounds we are healed.

He was wounded for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities; by His wounds we are healed.

We’ve become like a tourist who stalks the streets with camera to eye and never really experiences the foreign city because the photograph and the display back home has become the reality.

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 53:5 (KJV)

Sent from Heaven, God’s own Son
To purchase & redeem
And reconcile the very ones
Who nailed Him to that tree

Silent as He stood accused
Beaten, mocked & scourged
Bowing to the Father’s will
He took a crown of thorns.

He walked away, about a stone’s throw, and knelt down and prayed, “Father, if You are willing, pkease take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want Your will to be done, not mine.” Then an angel from heaven appeared and strengthened him. He prayed more fervently, and he was in such agony of spirit that his sweat fell to the ground like great drops of blood.
Luke 22:41-44
