Carried Our Sins!

Isaiah 53:4-12

I once watched a movie where the main character was saved by receiving a donor heart. The movie was a tearjerker, especially when the receiver realized who the donor had been. Sacrifice motivates us to tears, even limited, human, heroic acts.

And yet, we are far beyond understanding the depth of Christ’s sacrifice when He left His throne for our salvation. The Bible is clear about the pain and suffering Jesus endured on the cross, but it also reveals the devastating reality of the pure and sinless One who carried the sins of the world. How awful to suddenly feel the rift of sin and the grit of ungodliness. Our Lord felt the jaws of death close in on Him, as the kingdom of darkness claimed a short-lived victory. How gruesome for the exalted King of Heaven to dwell among the dust of fallen humanity with demonic evil clawing at Him.

Do we truly understand the level of heroism this took? Do we really understand what the outpouring of the wrath of God feels like? Because Christ does.
