His purpose alone

This is part of the prophesy of Jesus, written hundreds of years before He came. Two sentences stick out to me. “He had no beauty or majesty to attract us to him, nothing in his appearance that we should desire him.” And “a man of suffering, familiar with pain” He was not sent here in the name of beauty. He was never meant for that. His looks and stature in life were never what was important. He was sent here with a purpose and He lived for that alone. He was always meant to take all the pain of sin and bear it so that someday we will no longer feel it. We may suffer for a little while but joy comes in the morning! (Psalm 30:5) Some sweet day we will rest in the true beauty of our Lord who understands our pain. Just look at how He was rejected and eventually “pierced for our transgressions”. These actions were prophesied long before they happened! Jesus always knew. He was never surprised by the actions that took place, yet He came here anyway. He isnt surprised by your actions either, yet He sent you here anyway. You are here for a purpose. Maybe you dont feel you have great beauty that attracts others to you. Maybe you strive for that. You dont have to. Maybe you feel that you suffer great pains and no one could possibly understand. There is a Man that does understand every bit of it, and He is a Man that promised to turn all bad to good if you will just give it to Him(Romans 8:28). “By his wounds, we are healed” Resurrect what Jesus has put inside of you. We all have purpose. My prayer is that we all see that, understand it, and live for that purpose alone. In Christ name, Amen
