Jesus and Loneliness

Over on the Desiring God blog there is a great little piece by Jon Bloom asking the question, "Was Jesus a lonely child?" Isaiah 53:3 says of our Messiah, "He was despised and rejected by men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief." If you have ever struggled with loneliness then this should be an encouragement to you. Loneliness does not necessarily mean you have no friends, family, or are literally alone. In ministry loneliness is quite common. If you take unpopular stands on the Word of God for example you are going to feel way out there on your own. Your spouse is going to be acquainted with the feeling of loneliness on a whole other level. So consider the example of Christ and take encouragement in His sustaining arms.
