Either Adele practices radio sorcery or she just has a knack for connecting to listeners. “Hello” is a perfect example. The vocals are insane, and the lyrics resonate. There’s something about pain that we all relate to. It’s why I love Jesus.
He created the sun then got sunburned by it. No other faith can say that. God walked into our pain, experienced our broken world, and redeemed it through sacrificial love (2 Corinthians 5:21). It means that Jesus totally gets “Hello.”
Not that He had an ugly break up, but as the prophet Isaiah foretold, “He was despised and rejected, a man of sorrows, acquainted with grief; and as one from whom men hide their faces He was despised and we esteemed Him not. Surely, He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows…by His wounds we are healed.”
Jesus – the sunburned Sun Maker
There’s no pain on Earth He can’t relate to or bring healing.
