Isaiah 53:3 (KJV) ~ “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.”

Before we became a follower of Jesus, we had no regard for Him; each of us went our own way. There was a time in our lives when we had no time for Jesus. We turned our backs on Him, and did our own thing, caring little of the perilous position of our soul. We rejected Jesus and did not want to know about Him as our Savior, until one day, we realized our need for a Savior, and we longed for our soul to be saved and to spend eternal life in Heaven with Jesus. Many of us came to Jesus with our broken lives, broken marriages, broken homes and broken hearts. There at the cross of Calvary , at the feet of Jesus, we bowed and asked Him to come into our lives. Jesus felt our pain; He died for our sin and rescued us from the flames of hell. Anyone who comes to Jesus, He will never reject nor cast away. He loves you so very, very dearly.

He came to seek and save the lost. He came to heal us and make us whole in His name. The Bible says in Isaiah 53: 3 to 6 (KJV), “He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not. Surely, he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows: yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted. But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed. All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned every one to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.”

Jesus came to bind up the broken-hearted; He came to heal us of our pain, and to bring restoration into our lives. The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:7 (DARBY), “…Having cast all your care upon him, for he cares about you.” Jesus Christ came to give us peace, His peace. This man of sorrows, who died on our behalf, took upon Himself the form of human flesh, to feel our pain, to know our sorrow first-hand, so He could minister to our every need. What a Savior!

There is an old gospel hymn written by P.P. Bliss called, Man of Sorrows.

“Man of sorrows,” what a name, for the Son of God who came,

Ruined sinners to reclaim! Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Bearing shame and scoffing rude, in my place condemned He stood;

Sealed my pardon with His blood; Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Guilty, vile and helpless we, spotless Lamb of God was He,

“Full atonement,” can it be? Hallelujah! What a Savior!

Lifted up was He to die, “It is finished,” was His cry,

Now in heaven exalted high, Hallelujah! What a Savior!

When He comes, our glorious King, all the ransomed home to bring;

Then a new song we’ll sing; Hallelujah! What a Savior!

My friend, this Man of sorrows died for you and me, that we may have life in Him. He came to bring us peace and heal our broken lives. He came to save us and set us free, that we may join with all the saints, who say, “Thank you Jesus”.…and sing with a cheerful heart, “Hallelujah! What a Savior!”

God bless you my friend, Matthew.
