We avoid them at all cost,
and we should -
They hurt. 

But did you know that someone was wounded 
for you.  Yes, wounded so you could be healed.

The very God who created you and
gave you life.  He came down from
heaven and became a man offering
himself up to die in our place,
taking the death that we deserve.

His name is Jesus Christ.
He was wounded and killed
for you and me.

Mankind was told a long time ago that
he was coming to die in my place.

Here is the way it is said in 
Isaiah 53:4-6 NKJV.

"Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
But He was wounded for our 
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace
was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed.
All we like sheep have gone astray;
We have turned, every one to his
own way;
And the Lord has laid on Him 
the iniquity of us all."

Jesus Christ was wounded for you.
Don't ignore Him.
