A Man of Sorrows

Read

  Isaiah 53:1-3 (NET)

Who has believed our message? And to whom has the arm of the Lord been revealed?

For He grew up before Him like a tender shoot, and like a root out of parched ground; He has no stately form or majesty that we should look upon Him, nor appearance that we should be attracted to Him.

He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; and like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.

Reflect

Slowly re-read the scripture. Think about it and how it applies to you.

Respond

Respond to the Lord in thankfulness for His sacrificial death for our sins.

Rest

Finally, simply rest in the Word of God and in His presence. Abide in the Lord and allow Him to abide in you by and through His Word.
