He was despised and rejected by men;
a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief;
and as one from whom men hide their faces
he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
When Christ walked this earth, there were many who followed Him. There were multitudes that came to where He was. They wanted to see Him, they wanted Him the be the messiah that they thought they needed, but He was something different. Jesus came and fulfilled a deeper need than most people even knew that they had.
Do you see Jesus as He really is, or do you make the Messiah into your own image?
