He Became One of Us

Post  Admin on Mon 17 Jul 2017, 1:33 pm

 He Became One of Us  

Joseph Damien was a nineteenth-century missionary 

who ministered to people with leprosy on the island of 

Molokai, Hawaii.



Those suffering grew to love him and revered the

sacrificial 

life he lived out before them. One morning before

Damien 

was to lead daily worship, he was pouring some hot

water 

into a cup when the water swirled out and fell onto his



bare foot. It took him a moment to realize that he had

not 

felt any sensation. Gripped by the sudden fear of what 

this could mean, he poured more hot water on the same 

spot. Again, there was no feeling whatsoever. Damien 

immediately knew what had happened. As he walked to 

deliver his sermon, no one at first noticed the

difference 

in his opening line. He normally began every sermon

with, 

"My fellow believers." But this morning he began with: 

"My fellow lepers."1



Is this not similar to what Jesus did for us. He became

one 

of us, so he could identify with us, and give his life

as a 

sacrifice for us. "He [Jesus] is despised and rejected

by 

men, a Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And 

we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was

despised, 

and we did not esteem Him. Surely He has borne our 

griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him 

stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted. But He was 

wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for 

our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon



Him, and by His stripes we are healed" (Isaiah 53:3-5, 

NKJV).
