Message of the Day: Treated Cruelly But Bears It Silently!

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5, NKJV)

The servant dies for the sins of the people, they who have turned away from God. It is for them that he bears God’s punishment. He is treated cruelly, but he bears it silently. The New Testament sees the fulfillment of this in Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:24 says, “who Himself bore our sins in His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed.” (NKJV).

What caused Christ suffering was more than the cruelty of his persecutors. It was our sins, we who are now asked to suffer for his sake. It was our sins he bore on the cross. Sin’s power over us was broken through his death. We are cleansed, given life, and brought under his loving care.
