Unlike what the world views as beautiful or desirable,our Lord was one who walked among many who did not recognize He was the Son of God standing before them.John the baptist knew even though he was baptizing the people with water that there was one mightier coming after him whose shoes he was not worthy to unloose!(Luke 3:15-18), 15 And as the people were in expectation, and all men mused in their hearts of John, whether he were the Christ, or not;16 John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:17 Whose fan is in his hand, and he will throughly purge his floor, and will gather the wheat into his garner; but the chaff he will burn with fire unquenchable.18 And many other things in his exhortation preached he unto the people. (Isaiah 53:1-2).
To this day all who follow the Lord Jesus Christ and for all who have lived before us through faith understand what to suffer for His sake means.We have a wonderful lesson found in Hebrews the eleventh chapter of how important it is to fight the good fight of faith,for great is our reward(Hebrews Chapter 11).
