"He personally carried away our sins in his own body on the cross so we
can be dead to sin and live for what is right. You have been healed by his wounds!
Once you were wandering like lost sheep. But now you have turned to your Shepherd,
the Guardian of your souls."
- 1 Peter 2:24-25 (NLT)
By His wounds we are healed. By His death we have life. We are no longer without direction, purpose, or place. By His wounds we are now the sheep of His pasture and He shepherds our soul. For extra thought, read Isaiah 53.
Father, thank You for willingly being wounded for me. Thank You for voluntarily taking my place so that I could have life more abundantly. Today, I want to live for You,
not because I have to, but because of the debt of gratitude I feel.
