He was despised and rejected

He was despised and rejected— a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief. We turned our backs on him and looked the other way. He was despised, and we did not care. Yet it was our weaknesses he carried; it was our sorrows that weighed him down. And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God, a punishment for his own sins!

Isaiah 53:3-4 NLT

It is incredible when you read Isaiah chapter three through the leading and guidance of the Holy Spirit.  It is so clear that everything written in Isaiah so many years before Jesus points to everything that Jesus went through.  He came to this earth simply to lay down His life for us.  We didn’t deserve it, but in His love, grace, and mercy He came to lay down His life.

Jesus took the punishment that we personally deserved.  All of us are sinners and all of us are born into sin.  For a person to claim they are without sin, they are simply living a deception.  All of us are in need of a savior, but God is faithful and just to forgive us when we confess our sins unto Him.  Our focus must always be Jesus Christ.  It can’t be the past, it can’t be ourselves, and it can’t be our circumstance.  The Lord has simply asked us to seek first His kingdom and His righteousness and in seeking Him, He will lead and guide us into all things.
