My Peace

Maybe the most significant words about peace in the entire word of God.
Isaiah 53:5 But 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.
Christ's punishment bought my peace.
His wounds bring my healing.
I don't understand it.
But I'm so thankful for it.
I cannot pay it back.
But I will accept it.

Jesus brought peace between us and God through his death. Isaiah foretells this 700 years ahead of time. Amazing.
