“You are my Son, whom I love;

Mark 1:11
The other day, I was thinking about Jesus’ life circumstances.  It was a good reminder that our life circumstances are not a reflection of whether or not we are loved.  God’s love for us is not based on our feelings or shown in our circumstances.   
Look at the last three years of Jesus’ life:
– He was homeless (Matthew 8:20).
– He was surrounded by critical people (Mark 8:32).
– He was surrounded by people who did not understand him (Mark 8:21).
– His family did not believe in him (John 7:5).
– People wanted to be with Him for what He could give, not who He was (John 6:26).
– He did not have a wife.
– He did not have children.
– He did not have an income.
– He was not physically attractive (Isaiah 53:2).
– He was oppressed (Isaiah 53:7).
– He was afflicted (Isaiah 53:7).
– He was despised (Isaiah 53:3).
– He was murdered (John 19:18).
