But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.
The Hebrew word picture for “iniquity” is “bent”. Iniquity is the being “bent” from straight, twisted from the upright, and made crooked from the pure. While transgression are our comissions of sin, our iniquity is the propensity, or proneness to continue to sin.
Jesus, when He died, paid for our entire nature. He covered our individual sins, and our sinfulness. He, through His righteous act and sacrificial offering, made peace with God for us, by taking upon Himself the punishment we deserved.
[F]or if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
Galatians 1:10, portion
Freedom is found in the lack of chains.
A Psalmist wrote, “ I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.” (Psalm 121:1-2). When we make our decisions before God and man, do we understand that He is all that matters?

For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
The ground floor of the church building is the life of the Spirit, that is, being led by Him.
There is no other life, no other functional place of ministry than to be spiritually minded, and any ministry that occurs outside of that will only reproduce after its own kind. Any other form of church is a hollow, man-made shell, with no lasting fruit nor legacy.
Jesus came and demonstrated the first spirit-led life. He was cut off from this Earth through the waters of baptism, lived apart and separated in the Spirit realm of the Holy Ghost, and only after His death was he granted brothers.
