You were battered and bruised and scourged so that I can be healed

“SEE WHAT [an incredible] quality of love the Father has given (shown, bestowed on) us, that we should [be permitted to] be named and called and counted the children of God! And so we are! ” —–1 John 3:1 (Amplified Bible)

Blessed are You, O LORD Jesus Christ, the spotless Lamb of God. You are blessed for obeying Our Abba, Father to shed Your sinless blood for me, who was dead. I can’t even begin to imagine the extreme pain You must have endured on the cross. Jesus, You and Abba, Father bestowed such incredible love on me, this wretched sinner. You were battered and bruised and scourged so that I can be healed. Jesus, You took upon Yourself God’s righteous wrath against my sin. You gave up fellowship with Our Abba, Father for a time to experience hell so that I don’t have to. Your precious blood reconciled me to God. My portion is not shame and condemnation anymore, because My Abba loves me with His everlasting love. I have become His beloved child. He is always with me. He takes great delight in me. He will quiet me with His love when I am in distress. Jesus, through Your precious blood, I have constant access to God’s presence now. God has become my strong habitation unto whom I continually resort. Abba, Your infinite love made manifest in Jesus Christ, destroy all the powers and chains of the Evil One on my life so that I may live in the fullness of the freedom the blood of Jesus Christ has bought for me. Through the grace of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen.
