Grief and Sorrow

Surely, he has borne our griefs
     and carried our sorrows;
yet we esteemed him smitten
     of God, and afflicted. 
(Isaiah 53:4)

Jesus, the rejected and despised One, took
our griefs and our sorrows into Himself,
as He hung upon the cross. He became
sorrow; grief was his garment. How could
He carry my sorrow before I was even born?
He could do this because He died outside
of time.

Dear reader, it isn't just that God helps us
through terrible loss, He was there in your
awful moment 2,000 years ago. He took your
pain into Himself.
What a Savior!
Do you know Him?
