Hebrews 9:28 “So CHRIST, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to deal with sin but to save those who are eagerly waiting for HIM!” Oh rapturous Day!
Taken for me!
Scourges are whips
Unleashed upon unions
found coupled with Sin.
Such bring our pains
But GOD! But CHRIST!
HIS blood overwhelms…
By WHOSE red stripes
my soul has been healed;
Thus helped am I
directing your eyes
to Calvary’s cross…
when JESUS rose;
releasing my shame!
Therefore I am Free!
…just like you!
As HIServant and fellow released prisoner,
Devotional: 1 Peter 2:24 “HE HIMSELF bore our sins in HIS body on the tree, that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. By HIS stripes you have been healed!”
That’s the well known verse we love, isn’t it? And so are these others listed!
Titus 3:5 “HE saved us, not because of works done by us in righteousness, but according to HIS own mercy, by the washing of regeneration and renewal of the HOLY SPIRIT…”
1 Peter 1:18-19 “Knowing that you were ransomed from the futile ways inherited from your forefathers, not with perishable things such as silver or gold, but with the precious blood of CHRIST, like that of a lamb without blemish or spot.”
John 8:36 “If the SON therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed!”
Yes! HE took our punishment and secured us for eternity with HIM!
Come LORD JESUS, come!
Open the ears, eyes and heart of the Lost and draw them to YOURSELF through our intersections with them every day!
Amen and amen!
