4. Surely He has borne our griefs
And carried our sorrows;
Yet we esteemed Him stricken,
Smitten by God, and afflicted.
5. But He was wounded for our transgressions,
He was bruised for our iniquities;
The chastisement for our peace was upon Him,
And by His stripes we are healed. Is:53:4,5
The 4th verse starts with a ‘Surely’, surely HE bore our griefs and sorrows. When we compare our pain with what HE experienced is absolutely nothing. HE dint have to die on the Cross yet HE gave HIMSELF, HE dint have to take our punishment but still HE did, HE dint have to bear the insults but HE patiently endured and took all our sufferings grief,offences,sinfulness and sickness upon HIMSELF.
That historic Friday some 2000+ years ago, HE experienced every pain the whole of mankind would ever experience in their entire life time only to a very small fraction, but HE took it in full capacity – loneliness, rejection, extreme stress, hunger, insults, cursing, extreme violence, abuse, emotional trauma, physical impairment, torture and finally death itself. You name anything that you are going through right now, He has already taken it upon HIMSELF.
Cheer up, your pain and agony is so little compared to what HE went through on the Cross. You might be going through some kind of valley right now, be assured HE is standing next to you and comforting you saying- “My Child I feel your every pain and every sorrow because I already carried them upon myself”. HE is closer to you right now than your very breath!
JESUS knows your pain so rejoice and have a great day!!!
