Fighting Words Friday: Man of Sorrows

“He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed.” - Isaiah‬ ‭53:3-5 NIV‬‬
Good news on Good Friday. Drew and I wrote the song “Man of Sorrows” from this verse in Isaiah. Listened to that song again today with a grateful heart. So humbled that we have a Savior who is well acquainted with our grief. ⠀
