Lift

It was such a relief to have Ben lift my luggage down from the overhead compartment when we were coming back from our mission trip to Guatemala. I have a back that unfortunately can’t lift a lot, and I have to either risk injuring my back or rely on others to carry heavy loads for me.
1 Peter 2:24 combines two special words: “personally carried“.  Jesus did not send angels to lift the heavy load of our sin.  It is He Himself who lifts the heavy luggage of our sin off our shoulders, who rescues us from our burden of guilt.

“He personally carried our sins in his body on the cross so that we can be dead to sin and live for what is right. By his wounds you are healed.” (1 Peter 2:24)
