A Man of Sorrows
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
He who was the source of all joy, the giver of all peace, He before whom angels and archangels bow in adoration, is also called a "Man of Sorrows." Grief broke his Heart, crushed out His Life. Shall we through disobedience, rebellion, or lack of love or service, or worship, add to the sorrows which He bore, or shall we murmur if we, too, shall be permitted to partake of His sorrows, or to share His grief? He sorrowed all alone, save perhaps as angels ministered to Him in Gethsemane's deep shadow. But He shares thy grief, He carried all thy sorrow and comforts those who trust in Him. Shall we not worship and adore the Man of Sorrows?

Faithful and True
And He that sat upon him was called Faithful and True.
To no one else could that title be applied but the Lord Jesus, who was Himself the Way,the Truth,and the Life. He was faithful to the truth always and faithful in its application,whether in promises of blessings or cursing.Listen to the precious promise, "I will come again and receive you unto myself that where I am, there ye may be also." But the other is equally true,"Depart from me ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth."There is no change in the Written Word. Lord,We believe in Thee and in Thy Word.May we never depart from it. Keep us faithful and true to Thee until the long expected call comes and we shall be taken up to be with Thee forever. Amen.
