Jesus Understands

Hebrews 4:15

Jesus was tempted in all things as we are.

Well intended friends sometimes say, I know how you feel. However 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 the Father, and He does. On the other hand Jesus was without sin, so how can He really feel my sin the way I do? In fact He can because of His purity, He actually feels the pain of our sin much more than we do.

In conclusion, Jesus’ separateness from and sensitivity to sing, actually increases His ability to sympathize with us. Bottom line – Jesus understands what you’re struggling with.
