"Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted." - Isaiah 53:4

"...My God, My God, why have you forsaken Me?" - Matthew 27:46

The only begotten of the Father was forsaken by the Father while He was hanging on the cross. The sin of this world was laid on Jesus and as a result the Son was smitten by the Father. We cannot fully comprehend the great exchange that happened at the cross but we have assurance and hope of standing before the glory of God without sin due to the finished work of Jesus on the cross.
He bore our griefs and sorrows so we can rejoice all eternity in His presence.
Praise the Lord!
