A Son, A Savior

Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, thou art with me...

We are all in the valley - the shadow of death looms over us all. 
We keep ourselves busy, busy, busy with the distractions of this world - of this life, 
but the clock keeps ticking, and to no man is promised tomorrow.

We do not have to endure alone, our God will go before us, He will walk through the valley with us - we can stand and fear no evil. 

It is important to remember, however, that our Savior did indeed walk alone.
He endured the darkness, that we may be saved unto the light.

The Father turned from Him, because He bore our sin.

But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, And by His scourging we are healed. Isaiah 53:5


He Himself bore our sins in His body on the tree, so that we might die to sin and live to righteousness. "By His stripes you are healed."  1 Peter 2:24
