Jesus carried my sins and suffered on the tree so that I could be forgiven. Jesus Himself was not to blame; God and Jesus are perfect, but God so Loves the world that He gave His only begotten Son. It could have been stopped at any moment if either of them wanted to; Jesus knowing exactly what was before Him in anguish cried out “Your Will be done. ” The lesson that we have learned because of Jesus’ suffering was essential. With His pain our sin is forgiven. All we can do is live righteously and attempt to pay the debt back in a small way.
And He Himself bore our sins in His body on the cross, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness; for by His wounds you were healed. 1 Peter 2:24
The goat shall bear on itself all their iniquities to a solitary land; and he shall release the goat in the wilderness. Leviticus 16:22
Surely our griefs He Himself bore,
And our sorrows He carried;
Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten of God, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:4
This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: “He Himself took our infirmities and carried away our diseases.” Matthew 8:17
As a result of the anguish of His soul,
He will see it and be satisfied;
By His knowledge the Righteous One,
My Servant, will justify the many,
As He will bear their iniquities.
Therefore, I will allot Him a portion with the great,
And He will divide the booty with the strong;
Because He poured out Himself to death,
And was numbered with the transgressors;
Yet He Himself bore the sin of many,
And interceded for the transgressors. Isaiah 53:11, 12
And we pray:
Holy Father, The ONE and only God, You gave Your Son to us although we did not deserve Him. We scorned Him, tortured Him, and He died for our sins. This sacrifice is hard to even fathom, and I am forever indebted to You for it. Lord, forgive me for not remembering the importance of the message of Christ. His pain and suffering are debts that I shall try to pay my entire life through service to You, majestic Lord. In the name of Your Son, Jesus, I pray. Amen.
