Hi, God’s word for me today is in Isaiah 5:7 which says, “The vineyard of the Lord Almighty is the house of Israel, and the men of Judah are the garden of his delight. And He looked for justice, but saw bloodshed; for righteousness, but heard cries of distress.”
So what is this verse talking about when it says that He (the Lord) saw bloodshed instead of justice and cries of distress instead of righteousness, because we can apply this verse to us, how? By making it connect to the cross, because at the cross instead of justice there was bloodshed, because Jesus was (and is) perfect He didn’t deserve to die, but He did die for us, because if He hadn’t died then we would have to pay the penalty for our sins, now that doesn’t mean that we don’t have punishment for our sins, because God does punish us, but we won’t have all of His wrath get poured out on us like Jesus had, thank you so much Jesus.
So Jesus died for us, even though it was not right for an innocent man to die, He still did, and even though the Jews wanted Jesus to die they couldn’t bring any correct accusations against Him because He was perfect, and if He wasn’t then He would have to die for His sins not ours, ”
For many bore false witness against him, but their testimony did not agree. And some stood up and bore false witness against him, saying, “We heard him say, ‘I will destroy this temple that is made with hands, and in three days I will build another, not made with hands. (ESV Mark 14:56-58)
So their testimonies that they brought were false, because after all Jesus was perfect, and since Jesus is in us (Galatians 4:18-19), that means that God looks at us like we are perfect because He sees Jesus, that doesn’t mean that we are perfect because we still sin, but since the Holy Spirit is in us He is making us more and more like Jesus, thank you so much Jesus.
Do you believe that Jesus died for your sins on the cross?
