A Man Of Sorrows

Just as Jesus suffered in His humanity so will some of us as followers of Jesus will suffer in our humanity, but it should be for the glory of God and not for the suffering of our faults. God is not please with us when we suffer for our faults, but if we suffer for righteousness’ sake, then God will be please with us and He is glorified in us and through us. We have to make sure we are in good standings in our walk with the Lord as we suffer in this life so that we will see our rewards in this life and in the life to come.

He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief:and we hid as it were our faces from him;he was despised, and we esteemed him not.

Surely he hath borne our griefs,
and carried our sorrows:
yet we did esteem him stricken,
smitten of God, and afflicted.

But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5-10, KJV)

We should not be like the majority of Isarel that was in the wilderness for 40 years. Israel became a much fewer people that followed God because the majority went into a way of broadness of lust and pride that brought forth death. Though Moses did not receive his reward on earth of going into the promised land of Canaan, his reaction to Isarel did not cost him his soul, but to just not go into the promised land. Yet God still had mercy on Moses to let him see the earthly promised land. There is yet to come a new heaven and a new earth that awaits us that have followed through with God through Christ Jesus by way of Holy Spirit.

(Hebrews 5:5-10, KJV)

So also Christ glorified not himself to be made an high priest; but he that said unto him, Thou art my Son, to day have I begotten thee.
As he saith also in another place, Thou art a priest for ever after the order of Melchisedec.
Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strong crying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;
Called of God an high priest after the order of Melchisedec.
