For our sake He became poor…so that by His poverty, we might become rich.
This is an exhortation to act, not for the sake of doing, but for the sake of being in the presence of your Savior. To get a glimpse of His life, what He did, how He felt, how He hurt, how He loved, how He healed. How His eyes were fixed on another kingdom. With intentionality in His every step, He came, He laid down His life. Pierced for our transgressions, crushed for our iniquities, upon Him was the chastisement that brings us peace. By His stripes, we are healed. Because of the wrath of God that was poured out on Him, He can say ‘I died, and behold, I am alive forevermore, and I have the keys to death and hell.’
