As we reflect on the suffering that Jesus Christ endured for us on the cross, we begin to understand more deeply the magnitude and abundance of His love. In the redemptive purposes of God, great value and purpose accompany the mystery of the cross and suffering.
Jesus did for us what we could never do for ourselves. He conquered both sin and death. We are more than conquerors, because Christ fought the battle-and we got the gods! God didn’t save us begrudgingly but lavishly! He poured out His love on us-abundantly, generously-without reservation! He paid the price and we receive the benefits.
Through each of the seven wounds Jesus suffered, God has bestowed a corresponding benefit. Each wound illustrates a spiritual principle and the provision, privilege, and responsibility that accompany each wound
