But he was pierced for our transgressions;he was crushed for our iniquities;upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace,and with his wounds, 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 himthe iniquity of us all.(Isaiah 53:5-6 ESV)
А Він був ранений за наші гріхи, за наші провини Він мучений був, кара на Ньому була за наш мир, Його ж ранами нас уздоровлено! Усі ми блудили, немов ті овечки, розпорошились кожен на власну дорогу, і на Нього Господь поклав гріх усіх нас! (Ісая 53:5-6 Ukrainian)
O Lord our God ~ we give wholehearted thanks for your very being available to your creatures made in your image. Dear Father – please never turn off the showers of your generous love for all people. You remember us when we fall down under the heavy weight of sin and the shame that accompanies it. Forgive our foolish ways as we continue to trust in the shed blood of your beloved Son. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
