I remember years ago when the movie, The Passion came out. It so powerfully and graphically portrayed the suffering that our Lord endured for us. I went to one of the first showings because my daughter wanted to see it and I told her that I would view it first for her. Well, the next showing started and she watched it. But I was with her. Yes, I watched it twice.
During the first showing I was tearing up and cringing as I watch the scene of Jesus being scourged. But during the second showing, knowing what was coming, I experienced this tremendous joy surging through me. It was "just" a movie but the truth of the sacrifice and suffering set into me. I am healed. You are healed. The Lord is our healer!
"But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed."Isaiah 53:5 NKJV
