Jesus Understands

…[Jesus] has been tempted in all things as we are..’ Hebrews 4:15

Well-intentioned friends sometimes say, ‘I know how you feel.’ But deep down we think, ‘no, you really don’t.’ But Jesus does! He was ‘tempted in all things as we are,’ so He can interpret and present our feelings to God. And He does. When you pray in Jesus’ name, pouring out your heart to God, Jesus acts as your lawyer and says, ‘Father, I know what this person is feeling. I know what it’s like to be under pressure to sin. I stand with this child of Yours who needs Your help.’ You say, ‘But Jesus was without sin, so can He really feel my sin the way I feel it?’ Yes He can. In fact, because of His purity He actually feels the pain of sin even more. Perhaps an illustration will help. In our everyday world we live with germs all around us, and even on us. Because we aren’t in a sterile environment we don’t notice these germs and we learn to live with them. But it’s an entirely different story in a hospital operating room. There, any contamination from germs is a real threat that demands the attention of the entire staff. So they sterilise everything because bacteria can kill the patient. The purity of the room demands close attention to the presence of even the slightest impurity that could lead to a life-threatening infection. So Jesus’ separateness from, and sensitivity to sin, actually increases His ability to sympathise with us. Bottom line: Jesus understands what you’re struggling with!

…have a beautiful day,

  1. …tempted in ALL.things as we are…
    Sometimes we like to think: Ah! He don’t know what am going through because we think its really wicked: the Bible clearly states that in ALL things , not Holy but Each and everything we go through.

    1. this message came at a time when I needed to hear this the most…and how reassuring it was for me. We serve a mighty God πŸ™‚ I wouldn’t ask for anything else
