Topic: 1 Peter 2:24
Billy Graham talks about Jesus' suffering:
In 1 Peter 2:24 it says, "By His stripes, we are healed." Think of those stripes He received on His back. Think of the pulling of His beard, how that must hurt. And the spikes through His hands, the spear in His side. But that wasn't His real suffering. His real suffering was when He said, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?" God the Father in that moment became separated in a way that we don't understand from the Son. And Jesus went to hell for you and me. He took our hell and our judgment on the cross because He loved us and shed His blood for us.
As Mr. Graham has just said, Jesus Christ shed His blood on the cross for us. To begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, call here at the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, call toll free, at 877-2GRAHAM. Or click billygraham.org.
