Tempted Like Us, May 7, 2018

by Chuck Hetzler

“We do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are — yet he did not sin.” ¬†Hebrews 4:15

Jesus is more like us than most of us imagine. He lived a truly human existence. He emptied Himself of His divine rights when our Lord left Heaven for Earth. Although Christ committed no sin, He knows what it’s like to be tempted and face the stress and hardships of life. Go to Him; He empathizes with your struggles.

Lord Jesus, Thank You that You don’t reject me because I’m human, and thank You for living a perfect live so that I can be saved from my imperfection. Amen.
