Isaiah 53:5-6
[5] 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. [6] We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the Lord has laid on him the iniquity of us all.

Our transgressions, our iniquities, – our peace, our healing. This is what Jesus has done and as we celebrate Easter it is this at the centre – that all our mess-ups, all our mistakes, all our failures have been laid on Jesus and he has paid the price for them so that we can go free and be made righteous!

Lord Jesus, words can never be enough to give you the honour and thanks for all that you have done.
