Don’t leave Jesus hanging on the Cross


Galatians 3:13 establishes that our redemption from the curse of the law came with a curse on Jesus Christ for it is written, “Cursed is every one who hangs on a tree (Cross).” Isaiah 53:4-6 calls out seven instances of how Jesus Christ on the Cross is our Substitute.
1. He bore our griefs
2. He carried our sorrows
3. He was wounded for our transgressions
4. He was bruised for our iniquities
5. The chastisement of our peace was upon Him
6.With His stripes we are healed; and
7. Our iniquity has been laid on Him.

Points to ponder:
Jesus Christ on the Cross is OUR Substitute. But what is of crucial importance is to trust in Jesus, so that He can substitute the “self” within us, with himself. We must not leave Jesus hanging on the Cross! Is Jesus your Substitute?

Galatians 3:13 (KJV)
13 Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:

Isaiah 53:4-6 (KJV)
Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.
But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the Lord hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.
