Isaiah 53:5 (KJV)
5 But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.

1 Peter 2:24 (KJV)
24 Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.

Matthew 26:39-44 (KJV)
39 And he went a little further, and fell on his face, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou wilt.
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
42 He went away again the second time, and prayed, saying, O my Father, if this cup may not pass away from me, except I drink it, thy will be done.
43 And he came and found them asleep again: for their eyes were heavy.
44 And he left them, and went away again, and prayed the third time, saying the same words.

 Isaiah prophetically spoke of the sufferings Jesus that would incur. Jesus fulfilled the prophesy of all the suffering he went through; he was beaten, mocked, and spit upon. Though he prayed if there was some way he would not have to drink the cup he was still willing. Jesus knew the cup he was to drink was to take upon himself all the sins of the past, present, and future, but he was willing to do what was necessary so that we would receive the blessings that would come because of his death. Peter alludes to the prophesy and the reason for the death of Jesus. As the blessings are flowing into your life, remember the reason. Remember every blessing passes through the blood of Jesus Christ. Receive your blessings today and walk with praise in your heart.
