RESCUED: at great cost
It is amazing to know that God has RESCUED us through Jesus. He’s brought us into a new kingdom and a new relationship with him. But we shouldn’t ever take that for granted.
Isaiah 53:5 explains how much it cost Jesus to save us. He had to go through everything we deserved, instead of us:
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
the punishment that brought us peace was on him
In order to rescue us, Jesus REPLACED us.
Take some time today to think about what Jesus suffered when he died on the cross, and remember that’s what we all deserved.
THANK him and TRUST him to be your rescuer.
