He was crushed for our iniquities!
(J.C. Ryle, "Coming Events and Present Duties")
"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!" Isaiah 53:5
Let us live as if every allowed sin, was . . .
one more thorn in Christ's head,
one more nail in His feet,
one more spear in His side!
