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.
We all, like sheep, have gone astray,
each of us has turned to our own way;
and the LORD has laid on him
the iniquity of us all.
For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
During all of our fun this weekend let's remember why we celebrate the most wonderful day in history. That Christ died and defeated death so we may live with Him forever! The battle has been won already!!
