He is despised and rejected by men

He is despised and rejected by men,
A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.
And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him;
He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.  Isaiah 53:3

These verse described prophetically what Jesus would go through at Calvary.  He was despised and rejected because of us.  He knew the price that had to be paid at Calvary and He knew the pain and suffering He would face.  But it was His love for us that drove Him to choose to come to the earth and lay down His life.

Many in the world today despise the name of Jesus.  They reject the existence of God and want nothing to do with Him.  They want to simply live their lives to fulfill the selfish desires that exist within their hearts.  But God in His grace and mercy continues day after day to knock on human heart.  The Lord continues to advance the gospel throughout the earth.

When we understand the grace and mercy of God we will surrender our hearts and lives to Jesus Christ.  To follow Christ means to simply give Jesus all that we are.  His will becomes the driving force in our lives.  We simply live our lives to bring glory and honor to His name.
