Isaiah 53:5 But He Was Pierced For Our Transgressions, He Was Crushed For Our Iniquities; The Punishment That Brought Us Peace Was Upon Him, And By His Wounds We Are Healed.
In our pain, what difference does it make if Christ was tortured and crucified? Here is the answer: Christ permitted Himself to be crucified and He rose again on the third day to give us hope our pain will end. Of course, we have to do something here on earth in our life at the present time to assure ourselves we will see heaven. On earth, in the here and now, we must repent of our sins and accept Christ as our savior. Because Christ lived and died for us, we can look forward with hope and anticipation toward a life of eternal bliss with no more pain. Imagine no more pain, no more discomfort, and no more uneasiness!!! Wow!!! All of eternity and the infinite wonders therein are available to us because of Christ Jesus.
