Submission to Mistreatment

Centuries before submitting to the brutal treatment of the pre-crucifixion handling of the Jews and Romans, the Spirit of Jesus spoke through the prophet Isaiah,
I gave My back to those who struck Me,
And My cheeks to those who plucked out the beard;
I did not hide My face from shame and spitting.
(Isaiah 50:6)
Think on Jesus submitting to that treatment, and knowing before that He would so suffer. He knew that He was born to suffer these things, yet, He came anyway! Why did He submit Himself to such mistreatment?
