He Was Pierced For Our Transgressions

Christ on the crossFickle

Fickle. That’s what we humans are. Quick to shift loyalties and allegiance.

This past Sunday, Palm Sunday, we celebrated Jesus Christ’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem. Crowds lined the road. They shouted out their hosannas and praises, as Jesus passed by.

Yet, within five short days, those praises turned to condemnation.

Crucify him! Crucify him! Crucify him!

Although Pilate could find no wrong in Jesus, he gave in to the crowd’s demands. Pilate handed Christ over to be murdered. After that, Pilate washed his hands of Christ’s innocent blood.


Jesus was the sacrificial Lamb of God. He took the punishment mankind’s sins deserved upon himself. His sacrifice allows us entrance into the very presence of God. By Jesus Christ’s suffering and death, our sins were forgiven.

Your Turn

In this video by Central Christian Church, in Wichita, KS, a trauma surgeon medically describes the effect crucifixion would have on the human body.

He who knew no sin, took on the sins of the world, that by His wounds, we can be healed. Perfect Love.

The question, then, is what is our response to Christ’s Perfect Love?

When we were unable to help ourselves, at the right time, Christ died for us, although we were living against God. Very few people will die to save the life of someone else. Although perhaps for a good person someone might possibly die. 

But God shows his great love for us in this way: Christ died for us while we were still sinners. So through Christ we will surely be saved from God’s anger, because we have been made right with God by the blood of Christ’s death.

While we were God’s enemies, he made us his friends through the death of his Son. Surely, now that we are his friends, he will save us through his Son’s life. And not only that, but now we are also very happy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ. Through him we are now God’s friends again. Romans 5:6-11 (NCV)

I wish you well.
