'For our high priest is able to understand our weaknesses. He was tempted in every way that we are, but he did not sin.' - Hebrews 4: 15 (NCV)
No one else can touch our heart like Jesus do. There is no other person who can understand us better than Jesus. When no one is capable to tap our present consciousness; like what He does best, He will always stoop down to reach our understanding. As high as His name that is given above all names, His love is so deep and wide not to outstretch His arms on us.
As John 1:1 states 'The Word became a human and lived among us.'
Rather,’moved into the neighborhood. (MSG)’ More like of our friendly neighborhood Spider-man whom despite of his super-human like abilities, still go through the same dealings that common people do - sickness, depression, the hardships, and the heartbreaks. So I am not surprise how he became my favorite superhero since he’s the closest thing to reality - my reality.
Same with Jesus here, before He fixed us, He felt us. Like He came but He didn’t fix it first, He felt it. He came and lived among us and He felt what it was to be human, and then He offered Himself up.
That gives me hope because knowing that Jesus, who became like you and me, who shared the same struggles we deal with and overcame without sinning, It frees us from the bondage of ‘no one understands me’ status-quo’ even to the most hopeless cases. And not only He understands us because became like us, He made a way not for us to stay in that way, He made a solution - He was the solution!
We might find ourselves at times struggle in life but how good it is to remind us that Jesus had been there, experienced the same thing we are facing right now and won it all and by Him we can overcome anything that is in front of us. Be still, greater is Jesus that is in us than the enemy that is in this world. Nothing is impossible for Him who believes.
We are His child as we are His Father who is mindful of us that He gave Jesus without anything in return. Let us assure ourselves as He is victorious so we are.
For before we experience such trials, He felt it first.
