It really struck me this year how Jesus chose to become a man of sorrows for us. Jesus, Creator and Holy One of God, chose to be a man of brokenness, of pain, of sadness, offended over and over by each false or malicious word and driven nail against Him.
He was in glory and security and chose anguish that we could know the Father as He does, and follow Him both now and into eternal blessing. He made the way! Praise God!
