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.
