Hebrews 2:17

I am thankful Jesus understands everything we suffer

This side of heaven we will all face challenges. Jesus too faced many challenges when He walked this earth. Why? The purpose wasn’t for His benefit but for ours. Because now any temptation we face, Jesus knows. Any pain we suffer, Jesus knows. And any trial we experience, Jesus knows. Because He knows, there is no one better to intercede for us before God. I love how Dr. Charles Stanley says, “Jesus left heaven and became a man not only to become a sacrifice for our sins but also to experience what we feel and to know exactly what it’s like to be one of us. That’s what makes Him our perfect representative on the throne of grace.” Jesus now stands at the the right hand of the Father as our High Priest. Everyday He intercedes to the Father on our behalf. (Rom. 8:34) Christ was made flesh to suffer and die for us. And how thankful we are for His love and sacrifice!
