They called him every name in the book and he said nothing back. He suffered in silence, content to let God set things right. He used his servant body to carry our sins to the Cross so we could be rid of sin, free to live the right way. His wounds became your healing. You were lost sheep with no idea who you were or where you were going. Now you’re named and kept for good by the Shepherd of your souls. ~ 1 Peter 2:23-25 (Message)
Learn to know Christ and him crucified. Learn to sing to him, and say, “Lord Jesus, you are my righteousness, I am your sin. You have taken upon yourself what is mine and given me what is yours. You have become what you were not so that I might become what I was not.” ~Martin Luther
Remembering the day I lay stretched out on the floor and begged God to let me feel some semblance of what Jesus felt that day. To let me bear some of His pain. But I sensed Him say, “It’s over. Done. Finished. It’s not your pain to bear.“
