Upon You I was cast from birth; You have been my God from my mother’s womb. Psalm 22:10
This week we will continue the prophesies of Jesus Christ in the book of Psalms. Psalm 22 gives us a very detailed look into Jesus thoughts as he fulfilled his mission to be the Lamb of God to save the world from their sins. He displays his human side as well as his deity.
The Holy Spirit reveals here in Psalm 22:10 that Jesus would take on flesh and be born. As throughout Biblical prophecy it was known that the Messiah or Christ, would be a child born of a virgin, and he would be the Son of God. And Jesus reveals his struggle as a human, as he is prepared to become the suffering servant to take on the sins of the world.
As Jesus says in (Psalm 22:6) I am a worm and not a man, scorned and despised by everyone. Even today we see many who despise and scourn Jesus Christ. He took on the wages of our sins and punishment that we deserved and he didn’t. As Jesus said he was “cast from birth”. Meaning he left his throne in Heaven to become our sacrificial lamb for our sins.
So as we celebrate the birth of Christ, remember the gift he has already given us by his love and sacrifice. Don’t make light of the mission he fulfilled as our Lord and Savior in Jesus Name Amen!
