Jesus Is a Man’s Man


for youJesus is a man’s man. He sacrificed Himself because He loved everyone else. ~

He was despised and forsaken of men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief; And like one from whom men hide their face He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. Surely our griefs He Himself bore, and our sorrows He carried; Yet we ourselves esteemed Him stricken, smitten of God, and afflicted.

But He was pierced through for our transgressions, He was crushed for our iniquities; The chastening for our well-being fell upon Him, and by His scourging WE ARE HEALED.

ALL OF US like sheep have gone astray, each of us has turned to his own way; BUT THE LORD has caused the iniquity of us all To fall on Him. He was oppressed and He was afflicted, yet He did not open His mouth; Like a lamb that is led to slaughter, and like a sheep that is silent before its shearers, so He did not open His mouth.

[Isaiah 53:3-7 NASB]
