Strengthen and Encourage the Brethren 08/02/09

This week’s scripture comes from Isaiah:

“Surely, He has borne our griefs [sicknesses] and carried our sorrows, yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God and afflicted. But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed” (Isa. 53:4-5).

How wonderful it is to remember when in a time of suffering or illness that the Lord took all of our diseases, all of our iniquities, upon himself, and by His sacrifice we are healed. What a blessing we have in Jesus.

May He richly bless you with healing in this season.
