Day 33

Weekly Truth

from the Jesus, Keep Me Near The Cross reading plan


Isaiah 53:5

BY She Reads Truth

Text: Isaiah 53:5

We believe memorizing scripture is one of the best ways to carry the Word of our God with us wherever we go—to have God-breathed truth, instruction and reproof in our hearts and minds as we live unto Him each day.

This week we’ve chosen a powerful verse to remind us of Christ’s sacrifice.

“But he was pierced for our transgressions; he was crushed for our iniquities; upon him was the chastisement that brought us peace, and with his wounds we are healed.”
– Isaiah 53:5, ESV

Write this verse down—copy it twenty time if that helps! Post it on your mirror or at your desk, in your car or on the fridge—anywhere you’ll see it often. Save the image below as your phone’s lock screen so you can read these words of truth throughout the day.

We want to be a community that is intentional about scripture memorization. Will you join us?

    Jesus’ sufferings while on His journey to the cross are nothing compared to what we would face in hell. Something we discussed yesterday at church.

    Jesus:

    Pierced
    Crushed
    Chastised
    Wounded

    Me:

    transgressor
    Sinner

    Yet

    I receive peace
    I receive healing

    Thank you Father. Thank you.

    Hi! Thank you so much for this! It reminded me of this song, Healed by Nichole Nordeman.

    “We stutter and we stammer til You say us
    A symphony of chaos til You play us
    Phrases on the pages of unknown
    Til You read us into poetry and prose

    We are kept and we are captive til You free us
    Vaguely unimagined til You dream us
    Aimlessly unguided til You lead us home

    By Your voice, we speak
    By Your strength, no longer weak
    We are no longer weak

    By Your wounds we are healed
    By Your wounds we are healed

    Passed over and passed by until You claim us
    Orphaned and abandoned til You name us
    Hidden and disclosed til You expose our hearts

    By Your death we live
    It is by Your gift that we might give
    That we might give”

    Please take a listen! Thank You Jesus.

    Hi! I loved this (and I love Sundays!) and it made me think of this song, Healed by Nichole Nordeman. I thought I’d share the lyrics to it for you all;

    We stutter and we stammer til You say us
    A symphony of chaos til You play us
    Phrases on the pages of unknown
    Til You read us into poetry and prose

    We are kept and we are captive til You free us
    Vaguely unimagined til You dream us
    Aimlessly unguided til You lead us home

    By Your voice, we speak
    By Your strength, no longer weak
    We are no longer weak

    By Your wounds we are healed
    By Your wounds we are healed

    Passed over and passed by until You claim us
    Orphaned and abandoned til You name us
    Hidden and disclosed til You expose our hearts

    By Your death we live
    It is by Your gift that we might give
    That we might give

    Please take a moment to listen to it – it’s absolutely beautiful. Thank you Jesus.

  5. I think about all the ways I’m blessed & I thank Jesus for loving me & obeying God in dying for my sins. I don’t know where I would be without God

  6. Jen says:

    Such a simple sentence… yet SO powerful… has so much meaning!

  7. Antimony says:

    He was wounded, crushed, destroyed, killed so that I can be healed, restored, loved, forgiven, & made alive!
