Mary Was Wounded by Nancy Leigh DeMoss 08/26/11

Nancy Leigh DeMoss: Eight days after giving birth to Jesus, Mary was told, “A sword will pierce your own soul.” She wouldn’t fully understand those words until thirty-three years later. When Mary watched as Jesus was crucified, her soul was pierced.

For one thing, she was losing her son. But I also think her soul was pierced because she recognized her own sin. Jesus was dying not just for the world—he was dying for her. We all need to make that same discovery.

Until a “sword pierces our soul,” we don’t realize the depth of our sin and need. To be forgiven, Mary had to place her faith in the crucified Son of God who died in her place.

Have you trusted Christ as your Savior, realizing that the wounds He suffered on the cross were because of your sin and for your salvation?

  • “I henceforth take Jesus Christ to be mine. I promise to receive Him as a husband to me. And I give myself to Him, unworthy though I am, to be His spouse. I ask of Him, in this marriage of spirit with spirit, that I may be of the same mind with Him — meek, pure, nothing in myself, and united in God’s will. And, pledged as I am to be His, I accept as part of my marriage portion, the temptations and sorrows, the crosses and the contempt which fell to Him. — Jeanne M.B. de la Mothe Guyon, Sealed with her ring.”
