Christ as a man lived a lowly and sorrowful human life – this fully qualified Him to be our Redeemer!


Most Christians have heard of or read a specific chapter in the Bible which gives a view of Christ found nowhere else – Isaiah chapter 53. Here we see that Christ as a perfect man lived a lowly and sorrowful human life. He didn’t “look nice” nor was he famous and charismatic – rather, He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. His birth was lowly, in a despised and lowly place, and His family was also not rich – rather, it was a family in a low state. His whole human living was also full of sorrow. This is altogether different from the “Superstar Christ” or this handsome charismatic Christ portrayed in the icons and paintings in Christianity today. He had no attractive form, no comeliness, nothing that would make one desire Him. All these things fully qualified Christ to be our Redeemer and Savior! He grew up before God in His humanity and He was eventually perfected in His humanity – to become the One who ministers God, expresses God, and accomplish God’s economy. What a Christ we have! Here are some of the main points found in Isaiah 53:1-3 regarding the Lord Jesus’ human living:

These matters and the rest of chapter 53 of Isaiah shows us that Christ was fully qualified to be our Redeemer and Savior. No, these matters were NOT for our redemption – they were for perfecting Him and qualifying Him to be the Savior of fallen mankind. Christ being such a man and living such a lowly and sorrowful human life FULLY qualified Him to be the Savior to save fallen man! He saves us mainly from four things – Satan, Sin, Death, and the Self. He grew up like a tender plant before Jehovah – He grew up in His humanity(not in His divinity) before God – and He was perfected through the things that He suffered that He might be the One who can pay the highest price to redeem us and save us! How we love Him and appreciate Him for all He is and all He did for us! [sharing inspired from the Life-Study of Isaiah, message 27, by bro. Lee, as quoted in the Morning Revival on the Crystallization-Study of Isaiah(2)]

We just love You Lord Jesus! Thank You for the process You went through! You lived a lowly and sorrowful human life on the earth! And You didn’t complain about it nor try to change this! Lord, unveil us to really see who You are and what You have done for us! Your human living is our pattern, and Your humanity is indeed very high! O, Lord, how we love You and appreciate You! Though You had nothing outwardly that attracted man, yet You had God living and being expressed in You! Lord, we just love You!
