KNOWS OUR THOUGHTS
Hebrews 4 states that, “This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” As our High Priest and as a man himself, Jesus faced many of the thing same temptations we do.
But Jesus wasn’t only a man. He is God too. We can only imagine what that part of Him must be like. Some of the hardest parts of walking in this world as God and man had to be carrying the weight of all the world’s sin and being rejected by His own creation. Right there with it had to be knowing the thoughts of men. How hard must it have been to be able to know the thoughts of the people he preached to or the brokenness of the hearts he ministered to?
If Jesus were standing before you and stared into your eyes like he did with Peter in the Temple after Peter denied him for the third time, do you think that it would change the way you live your life? Would you finally respect Jesus as Lord of your life?
