Jesus Understands

“For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

– Hebrews 2:18

Jesus is God Incarnate. Any other doctrine is not Christianity. This makes Him the only God who willingly came down from His throne. He made way for us when He suffered on the cross.

The book of Hebrews brings to light the truth that we may not always keep at the forefront of our minds. This book reminds us that the Lord understands the human frame. Had Jesus not experienced human pressures like weakness, temptation, and pain, He would not be acquainted with our sorrows. It is essential for us never to minimize His humanness. It brings no honor to Christ to focus only on His deity. It is healthy for us to remember the unity of “His divine-human person.”

Today, whatever you might be going through, remember that Jesus, God in the flesh, has experienced it in His humanness. Yes, He is perfect and did not sin, but He understands what it is like to be weary, hungry, lonely, pressured, and in pain. And because of His experience in His humanness, He can identify with us.

“For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”

– Hebrews 4:15
