“He himself bore our sins” in his body on the cross, so that we might die to sins and live for righteousness; “by his wounds you have been healed” (1 Peter 2:24)

You have been healed through, by, and for Christ, the One who saves.  He took upon Himself the iniquity of us all.  He has done what needed to be done in order that you might be freed to live into the life for which You have been created.  This is the amazing mystery that has been revealed to those who believe that through this death comes eternal life.  Live then into the life that Christ gives.

Lord Jesus, in You alone is there all hope.  You have come in order that all those who trust in what You have done for us, may walk the upward path that leads to eternal life.  Guide me now and always Lord so that I would forever trust You.  You have done this and there are many more promises that are an assurance to me.  Guide me now and always so that I may humbly walk the way of everlasting life.

Lord Jesus my Savior, in You alone is there all hope and a future.  You have died so that I might live.  You have united me through Your death with eternal life.  The mystery is deep, but I see it before me.  Guide me, Lord Jesus, in the way You know I need to go.  Guide me according to Your goodness and mercy to humbly walk the path You have laid before me.  In all I do, may I look to You for the grace You have purchased from the cross to redeem me.  Amen.
