“He poured out His soul unto death, and He was numbered with the transgressors, and He bore the sin of many.” Isaiah 53:12. Sooner or later we all feel the painful effects of sin. Sometimes it’s the weight of our own sin. At other times, it’s the load of someone else’s sin that weighs us down. Try to imagine the accumulated grief that sin has caused throughout the centuries. The weight of all this sin began squeezing the life out of Jesus on the night He was called to bear it. The next day, even His Father would forsake Him. No other suffering can compare. Sin put Jesus to the ultimate test, but His love endured it, His strength bore it, and His power over came it. Thanks to Jesus’ death on the cross sin will not and cannot win.
