Today’s #MusicMonday is brought to you by Hillsong Live and the song “Man of Sorrows” off of their newly-released CD, Glorious Ruins. Here’s the video.

I don’t know that a lot of explanation is required for today’s song, other than to say it’s just a great picture of the gospel story. Jesus lived the perfect life and offered himself up as a sin offering on our behalf, that we might have a chance to place our faith and him and receive forgiveness from sin. But the story doesn’t end there! Jesus rose from the dead, conquering death and our sin once and for all. As Paul would say in 1 Corinthians 15:17, if Christ hasn’t risen, our faith is futile. But the beauty is that Jesus, the Man of Sorrows, has lovingly given his life for us so that we may receive eternal life in him!
I pray that all of us today can take a step back and express our appreciation and gratitude to God for this awesome gift!
