“This was to fulfill what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet: ‘He Himself took our infirmities and carried away our diseases’” (Matthew 8:17).
Whether it’s a viral pandemic, wars, famines, or natural disasters, it’s an endless list of things that bring forth human pain and suffering. In the midst of it all is the presence of Christ, working to redeem the brokenness of a creation that, itself, desires to be set free from the slavery of its corruption (Romans 8:21). When it doesn’t look as if he is, or if it isn’t being accomplished in the way or the time frame you would work to make things right, remember this: his thoughts are not our thoughts nor are our ways his ways (Isaiah 55:8). The cross proves this to be so.
