What Christ Took Up


Surely he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows (Isaiah 53.4)

For eternity, Christ had experienced only his Father?s love, delight, joy, pleasure and fellowship. But he freely took up weakness, hunger, sorrow, rejection, sin, agony and God’s wrath. Why? To bring poor sinners to God.

    Wonderful reminder! I don’t think we’ll understand what Jesus left for us until we see heaven. His love is stronger than anything we can imagine.

    Hey there Mark!
    Great post, It such an amazing thought that Jesus gave up all of the incredible benefits of heaven for unworthy sinners like us. I’m always left in wonder when I read Phillipans 2:6-11 and how we are to make our own attitudes like Jesus.
    What a worship inspiring thought! I’m thankful that the Lord sees the big picture, He’s infinite and we are so incredibly finite.

  • Megan,

    We can only imagine the depths of Jesus’ love for us!

    Hi Ron,

    Oh, if only I could consistently have the attitude of Jesus!
