SCRIPTURE: “Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.” – Isaiah 53:4
We are all sinners, but Christ died in our place. Jesus Christ was despised and rejected by men, He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. He was despised.
The Jews were expecting a messiah they were expecting someone like David who was famous for killing Goliath. However, Jesus Christ did not meet their expectations for a messiah.
His suffering for us was misunderstood. On the day of crucifixion, the Jews said let the Christ, the king of Israel, come down now from the cross that we may see and believe (Mark 15:32). In the night, when there was darkness in the whole world, some of them believed that surely, He is the son of God. Every one of us is a sinner. All we like sheep have gone astray. Though some claim to be good, but the Bible makes us understand that we are all sinners. The bible say when we are yet sinners Christ died for us. Christ died in our place God does not look upon sin lightly Jesus was punished for our sin. He came to serve and gave his life as a ransom for many. Jesus was a good shepherd, who searches for the lost sheep.
He borne our griefs, he carried our sorrows, he was crushed for our iniquities and upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace. The almighty God on him the iniquity of us all. He died for our sin and for our salvation.
Jesus Christ is our divine substitute he substitute his life for us. He died that we may have life and that we have it more abundantly.
Jesus came and took upon himself all our sins our sins wave transformed to Him. He because our substitute. He paid it all.
