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.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to his own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all. (Isaiah 53:4-6 )
If you can include yourself as one of those who have “turned our own way,” who have “gone astray,” then Jesus loved you and paid the punishment you owe.
.. That you, my God, should die for me?? Amazing
one of my favorite passages, makes me cry everytime I read it
