“He was despised and rejected by men,
a man of sorrows, and familiar with suffering…
Surely He took up our infirmities
and carried our sorrows
yet we considered him stricken by God,
smitten by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was upon him,
and by his wounds we are healed…
By oppression and judgement he was taken away…
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him and cause him to suffer,
and though the Lord makes his life a guilt offering…
and he will bear their iniquities…
because he poured out his life unto death and was numbered with transgressors.
For He bore the sin of many, and made intercession for the transgressors.
“Behold the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world.”
After he appeared to them he said,
“Peace be with you”
“Put your fingers here; see my hands. Reach out your hand and put it into my side. Stop doubting and believe.”
“Because you have seen me, you have believed; blessed are those who have not seen and yet have believed.”
Hosanna! He is Risen! Jesus is Alive!
Let us not just celebrate an Easter Holiday or Tradition…
Let us embrace Jesus and be spiritually moved and grow by being overwhelmed by who He is and what He has done for us. Let us be transformed by the renewing of our minds in Christ Jesus Today!
May He Bless You All through Eternity!
