Verse – Isaiah 53:3-5
He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds, we are healed.
Reflection – Isaiah 53:3-5 – Our Spiritual Healing
When Adam sinned against God, we were all doomed for destruction because we all came from the same seed. It is impossible for an orange tree to grow from a mango seed. Christ came to dig up our sinful seeds so he could replace them with the seed of God which was given to Adam in the first place.
This is why he was killed and buried for our transgressions so he could renew the spiritual covenant between man and God. We are healed by this ultimate sacrifice. Our spirits have been cleansed and renewed by this sacrifice. This means that we are already victorious in whatever obstacle that we face.
The spiritual battle is already won. Whatever problem you think your physical body is facing should not be a problem for your spiritual nature. The fruits you bear now should be only that of the spiritual seed God gave us in the first place so all impure fruits, leaves, and branches should be different from now on.
