Today as I thought on the holes we have from bad decisions, hurtful remarks from others, loss and more. We sometimes feel like these sores are growing and beyond healing. But Christ took on those holes for you…so you could be wholly holy.
Surely he took up our pain
and bore our suffering,
yet we considered him punished by God,
stricken by him, and afflicted.
But he was pierced for our transgressions,
he was crushed for our iniquities;
the punishment that brought us peace was on him,
and by his wounds we are healed.
He showed the disciples and us through His Word that those holes were to show how God works even greater things through what seems to be the worst pain. He took on our wounds, our sin, our holes so we could be whole and holy.
