God made Christ, who never sinned, to be sin itself,
so that we could be made right with God through Christ.
(God put the wrong on Him who never did anything wrong,
so we could be put right with God.)
- 2 Corinthians 5:21NLT/(MSG)
By Ramone - August 29, 2009
He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows...
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...
He was cut off from the land of the living;
for the transgression of my people He was stricken...
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,
He will see His offspring and prolong his days,
and the will of the Lord will prosper in His hand.
After the suffering of His soul,
He will see the light of life and be satisfied;
by His knowledge My righteous servant will justify many,
and He will bear their iniquities...
He poured out his life unto death,
and was numbered with the transgressors.
For He bore the sin of many,
and made intercession for the transgressors.
- Isaiah 53
