Morning Manna by Rufus Parker - 18 April 2019

The Man of Sorrow

“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.” (Isaiah 53:3)

Today’s Morsel:  When we look at the life of Jesus, we must ask ourselves how is it that one man, Jesus Christ, could be so hated by so many for wanting to do good, who came to help others be good and do good, and be successful in life; how could He be so hated? Even today, we see that His ways and those who are associated with His ways are despised and rejected.  Isaiah said that “He is despised and rejected of men."  He is still rejected by the Jews, by some religions, by many of the rich, by many of those who call themselves great and learned, by many politicians and actors, and by masses of people of every grade, age, rank, and walk of life.  He stood on the outskirts of Jerusalem saying, “O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, which killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen doth gather her brood under her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time come when ye shall say, Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord.” (Luke 13:34-35)  He was a man of sorrow and acquainted with grief.  He knows everything we face and go through in our life.  So, today, if you hear his voice harden not your heart.  Don't be one of those that reject Him.  

Sing: He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; Surely, He bore all our sorrows, and by His stripes we are healed.


Thought For Today: To reject Christ is to reject life.

  2. At the time, I was attracted to my future husband for his cool composure under pressure and his decisiveness. He said he was initially attracted to me for my warmth and vulnerability. Describing those same characteristics at our tenth wedding anniversary, I think I called him “cold and controlling” and he called me “neurotic.” At our divorce, we agreed that he had enough of my vulnerability and I’d had enough of his decisiveness to last a lifetime.
