Getting To Know God
His Name Is...
The LORD Who Provides - The Promised SEED - The Grace of God - The Intercession Of God
Bearing The Load
Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.
If not for the infinitely gracious intervention of God, we would all be born into sin, live without hope, and die condemned in eternal darkness. Is there a more pitiful existence? Understanding this, God took it upon Himself to provide a solution. God provided One that was infinitely strong, able, and gracious like Him. God provided One on behalf of all mankind, to bear the grief of humanity, carry the sorrow of condemnation, and that could endure the beating of the Almighty. Sin produces debt that must be paid. God interceded on our behalf to pay that price. If not for Him, we remain most pitiful.
