Anytime two plants are grafted together, a hole is cut into the side of one plant and the other plant is fused into it. A hole is cut into the side of one plant so that the two can grow together. A hole was pierced into our Lords side and we have been grafted into the family of God. ( Isaiah 53:5) " But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities, and the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we were healed." You need to realize that your not going to be defined by your past, now that you have been grafted into the Lord Jesus Christ. We are no longer tied to sin that used to hold us, it has been washed by the blood of Jesus Christ.
