Yet, we can be completely certain of the fact that Jesus always understands us. There is no experience that you may face, no emotion that you can feel, nor is there any temptation that you can battle, that Jesus does not fully comprehend. He identifies with your hurts. He feels your injuries. Why, it doesn’t matter what you have gone through (except for sin), Jesus can say, “Been there and done that!”
Jesus empathizes with human experience not just by knowing about it but by entering into it. God chose to send the Son into the world so that He would have firsthand experience of mortal life. John 1:14 says that the “Word became flesh and dwelt among us.” The New Testament presents Jesus as so fully identifying with the human experience that he faced the same enemies that all human beings face: sin, disease and death.
2 Corinthians 5:21 – God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God.
Hebrews 4:15 – This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for He faced all of the same testings we do, yet He did not sin.
Knowing that Jesus understands us so completely, we are exhorted to “come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.” Let me encourage you so take advantage of such a great friendship. For truly, no one understands you like Jesus.
