Isaiah 53:5 “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.” His piercing is the prelude to our peace. His wounds are the salve to our healing. This is why we fall down in worship at the feet of Jesus. This photo was taken from the Jeronimos monastery in Belem, Portugal where people around the world have worshiped Christ for over 500 years. Christ’s sacrifice invokes our worship, instills our peace, and invites our healing.
