I am so glad that right now at the Father’s right hand we have someone who came as a Man to redeem us, and who fully understands what we go through. When Jesus walked on Earth, He went through every human emotion so that He could identify with us in all things. Jesus is in the Father’s presence representing us. You may feel that no one understands your struggles. Listen, while this may be true of men, it is not true of Jesus. He knows exactly what you are going through and He can sympathize with your weaknesses because He was “in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin”.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. – Hebrews 4:15 (KJV)
None of us have been tempted in all things. But God allowed Jesus to be tempted in all points so that He can understand and identify with the struggles of every single person on this earth. He can be touched by our humanity, our weaknesses, tears, disappointments, griefs…..all things! There is no trial, difficulty, challenge or temptation that you face that Jesus cannot identify with. Brothers and sisters, the moment you go through it, right there and then, He feels it too. That is the kind of friend, the kind of representative we have in Jesus! That is the love of God so that you will draw near to His throne of grace (not judgment) to find mercy and grace in time of need!
Jesus is our best friend!
