Jesus Understands What You Are Going Through

Hebrews  4 -15
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.

Do  you  sometimes wonder if God really knows,
what  it is  like  to be  poor , rejected by people,
or sick  with  aches  and pains.
Perhaps  you  are asking,
Does God  really  understand  what I am
going  through?

My   friend , Jesus  was  no stranger  to,
emotional  or physical  pains , poverty  or  hardship.
He  was  born into a poor family.
He  had  a  smelly  manger  for His birthplace.
(Luke 2  -7)
From  an early  age  as a carpenter ,
He knew  all  about  working  hard with His,
hands, standing  on His  feet  all  day long,
and  returning  home  with  aches  in His body.

The  religious  leaders of  His  day made life,
difficult  for Him, they  challenged His,
authority(Matthew 21 -23) and  tested His,
teachings (Matthew 19 -3)They  also called,
Him  a glutton , winebibber , friend  of
tax  collectors  and sinners(Matthew 11-19)
and  blasohemer. (Mark 2 -7)

They  said  that  He  was  demon -possessed
and  mad(John 10 -20) put  Him on the spot,
when  they  brought  an adulterous  woman to Him (John 8 - 2 -11)
attempted  to stone  Him.
(John 8 - 59 , 10 - 31- 39)  and  accused
Him  of  perverting  the nation .(Luke 23 -2)

Have  you  been  chased  out of  your home,
because  of   your Christian  beliefs ?
Jesus  understands what  you are going through.
He  was  chased  out of His own Hometown
(Luke 4 - 29) Have  you been rejected,
by  someone  you love?  Jesus  also experienced,
the  pain of  being  denied  by  a loved one,
(Luke 22 - 54 - 62)  and  betrayed  by one,
considered  close  to Him,(Luke -22- 47-48)
He also knows all  about  the sickness you,
are  suffering  because  He  bore  your sicknesses,
and pain  on  the cross.(Isaiah 53 -4 )

Jesus  certainly  understands  all  that we going,
through  because  being  born fully Man
He  was in  all  points  tempted  as we are.
He  endured  His  sufferings for our sakes,
so  that  we can  have  His  peace and the,
anointing  to rise  above  the  trouble we are facing!
