The picture above is from Mustard Seeds, a blog written by a lovely young Christian mom who is striving to sow the seeds of faith in her young children. Her post from yesterday gave me a fresh reminder of what Jesus did for me when he carried my sins to the cross.
Surely our griefs (sickness because of sin) He Himself bore, And our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, Smitten of God, and afflicted.
But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him. And by His scourging we are healed.
All of us like sheep have gone astray, Each of us has turned to his own way; But the Lord has caused the iniquity of us all to fall on Him. Isaiah 53:4-6
He was delivered over to death for our sins and was raised to life for our justification. Romans 4:25
