Isaiah 53:5 5But He was pierced for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon Him, and by His wounds we are healed.
Why was Jesus pierced? For our transgressions! Why was He crushed? For our iniquities. The only way we could have peace with God is for someone to pay the sin debt we owed. Someone had to be punished for our rebellion against God. The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him.
How could we be healed? By His wounds! All of us are like sheep that wander away from the Shepherd that cares and looks after us. We wander off into dangerous areas in which we can be attacked and be devoured by the wolf. The LORD has rescued and delivered us and has taken good care of us.
Consider: How grateful, how thankful, how forever indebted we must be to Him!
