Are you ready to be healed? We need not to forget Jesus has had the same wounds we have or encounter. By his wounds we are healed. The sacrifice suffers so the worshippers don’t have too. Jesus has already suffered for our enemies sins against us. He can take away all the pain. So take your wound and give it to Jesus. He can carry that burden because he already experienced it himself. God wants us to live in freedom, so don’t waste Jesus’ suffering by holding on to our wounds. Because the scripture states “he was pierced for our rebellion, crushed for our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed.” | Isaiah 53:5
