The Son Nailed Our Sins Ter a Mast

Finding Jesus — 1 Peter 2:22-24

Christ committed no sin.

The Son committed no sin.

The Son ne’er lied nor deceived a feller.

When they hurled insults at him, he refused ter strike back. When he suffered beatings, the lash, thorns pressed inter his scalp, he made nary a threat. Instead, the Son consigned himself ter the One who judges justly.

The Son bore our sins in his body while nailed ter a mast. He done this so that we might die ter our sins: die and live righteous lives.

By the wounds and whelps of the Son we have been healed. The infectious sin that corrupted our soul be cured.

Oh, ter be sure, the healing process ‘ill take a while—most near our whole lifetime. But healed ya be. Only, doth not go off looking ter get sick again. Stay away from all schemes that ‘ill bring afflictions ter yer soul. Now that ya be in good health, work ter remain upright.

The Son went ter a great deal of trouble on yer account. Make his efforts count.
