It has all been laid on Jesus

“My friend, if you belong to Christ, you can be confident that your suffering is not punishment for your sin. And how do I know that? Because someone has already been punished for your sin so that you won’t have to be. All the punishment you deserve for your sin—your outright rebellion against God or your utter apathy toward God, your refusal to love him with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength, all of the ugliest, most shameful things you have said and done—it has all been laid on Jesus. He was punished for your sin so you won’t have to be.”

— Nancy Guthrie, “The Wisdom of God”
