Jesus Man of Sorrows; Jesus bore our sorrows
For the next weeks we are going to focus on the Names of Jesus.
*Jesus did not come to enjoy a life of happy kingship over the world. He came to carry the world’s sins and sorrows, that we might have eternal joy with Him and God the Father.
He is despised and rejected [forsaken] by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Isaiah 53.3
The quiet hour of prayer is one of the most favorable opportunities He has in which to speak to us seriously. In quietude and solitude before the face of God our souls can hear better than at any other time. O.Hallesby
When He gives quietness, who then can make trouble? Job 34.29
