The Suffering Servant
"Surely He took up our infirmities and carried our sorrows,
Yet we consider 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
Jesus already paid the full price for our salvation. He who knows no sin became sin for us so that we can approach the Father without any condemnation. All that we have to do is accept the grace of salvation by accepting Jesus Christ as our Lord and personal savior and surrendering our lives to Him. When Jesus Christ uttered one of His last words on the cross and said, "It is finished," He meant just that.
