All about sorrow today. And comforting words for the right kind of sorrow.
2 Corinthians 7:10 [Full Chapter] For the kind of sorrow God wants us to experience leads us away from sin and results in salvation. There’s no regret for that kind of sorrow. But worldly sorrow, which lacks repentance, results in spiritual death.
1 Samuel 1:16 Don’t think I am a wicked woman! For I have been praying out of great anguish and sorrow.” (Hannah)
IN SORROW: what sorrow awaits for some
Isaiah 53:3-5 New Living Translation (NLT)
3 He was despised and rejected—
a man of sorrows, acquainted with deepest grief.
We turned our backs on him and looked the other way.
He was despised, and we did not care.
4 Yet it was our weaknesses he carried;
it was our sorrows[a] that weighed him down.
And we thought his troubles were a punishment from God,
a punishment for his own sins!
5 But he was pierced for our rebellion,
crushed for our sins.
He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed.
- 53:4 Or Yet it was our sicknesses he carried; / it was our diseases.
