Isaiah 53:5-6—But He was wounded for our transgressions; He was crushed for our iniquities; upon Him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with His stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned—every one—to his own way; and the Lord has laid on Him the iniquity of us all.
Jesus literally took Barabbas’s place on the cross. Let this explode in your life—you are Barabbas. He was the worst criminal ever seen, and Jesus took his place—and your place—on a criminal’s cross. Through this sacrifice, we are healed. This is the basis of our lives, and should be the motivation for everything we do.
