But He was pierced for our rebellion, crushed ofr our sins. He was beaten so we could be whole. He was whipped so we could be healed. All of us, like sheep, have strayed away. We have left God’s paths to follow our own.-Isaiah 53: 5-6 (NLT)
He did not do all of this so that we could walk out our OWN plans for our lives..but that rather we could be restored to His original plan for our lives. So that we would not have to endure the punishment we so rightly deserved. Yet He took the punishment for us that we may be reconciled back unto the Father…back to the ORIGINAL PLAN.
