Verse five explains exactly what Jesus did for all of us.
He was wounded for our sins, the beating He took was ours.
The crucifixion was for our sins against God.
Our sins were on His back as He was whipped. All this was endured in order to bring peace between us and God.
We, were healed by the tearing of His flesh.
The innocent being abused and executed on behalf of the guilty.
We have been made whole by His sacrifice.
“For the death he died he died to sin, once for all” Romans 6:10a ESV
What a loving savior we have, willing to go through all of that to save us from our sins.
Doesn't He deserve our unwavering devotion and loyalty?
