“He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief.”
Isaiah 53:3

Despised and forsaken

How would people treat a hero who comes to save the world? When we look at super hero movies, we see people praising the hero and worshipping him/her. Jesus Christ was the hero sent to earth to save humanity. He had many who followed Him, but towards the end of His life, everyone had abandoned Him. People despised Jesus and forsake Him, and in the end put Him on the cross to be killed.

Man of sorrows

We may have had similar experiences of being despised or forsaken. We experience sorrow in our lives. Jesus was no stranger to sorrow. His closest companions had betrayed Him. When we are in sorrow, Jesus understands. When we are sad, let’s pray to God!
