Learn Hebrews 4:14-16
“Nobody understands like Jesus. He’s a buddy past evaluate. Meet Him on the throne of mercy; He’s ready for you there.”
Over fifty years in the past, John W. Peterson penned these phrases right into a music following a bitter expertise. Mr. Peterson gave this account of the music.
“I started to really feel very alone and forsaken. Immediately, I sensed the presence of the Lord in an uncommon manner and my thoughts was diverted from my difficulties to His faithfulness and sufficiency. Quickly the thought occurred to me that He totally understood and sympathized with my situation- in actual fact, nobody might ever utterly perceive or care as did He.”
My husband was solely twenty-one when he skilled the tragic lack of his mom. He recollects listening to the radio play that comforting music quickly after she crossed into glory. He was capable of keep the course as a result of he might forged all his care on Jesus. Why? As a result of Jesus, totally God, was additionally totally man and might sympathize with all of our weaknesses and difficulties.
Three phrases summarize the e book of Hebrews:
Jesus is healthier.
Jesus is healthier than all of the Outdated Testomony symbols that pointed to Him. As Moses was instructed on Mount Sinai, the tribe of Levi was set aside for priestly duties. Annually, on the Day of Atonement, the excessive priest entered the Holy of Holies to supply the blood of a spotless lamb for the sins of the folks and his personal sins. Hebrews chapter 5 says that the excessive priest can deal gently with the ignorant and misguided since he himself is also beset with weak spot.
However, because the theme of the e book tells us, Jesus is healthier. When Jesus stepped out of heaven, He selected to return, not as a completely grown, mature man, however as a child. He was depending on His dad or mum’s nurturing. He ran and performed and doubtless fell down and scraped His knee. He discovered a commerce as a craftsman from His earthly father. He had mates and enemies. He laughed and cried. Jesus embraced all of our humanness, however, as a result of He was additionally totally God, by no means sinned. For that reason, He’s the best excessive priest. He understands all of our weaknesses however, as a result of He has no weak spot or sin, He not solely supplied the sacrifice, however He grew to become the sacrifice. John referred to as Him the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world. Solely Jesus may very well be each the priest and the providing.
All of us need an understanding buddy after we encounter problem. We lengthy for somebody who accepts us and can by no means allow us to down. However, as I’ve heard from certainly one of my favourite Bible lecturers, the content material of contentment is Christ. We’ll at all times be upset if we glance to others to satisfy our wants that solely Jesus can meet. Is Jesus your buddy? Do you come boldly earlier than His throne and discover His understanding assist in your time of want? Might your coronary heart be full of the refrain, Nobody is so close to, so pricey as Jesus; forged your each care on Him.
You may give Him all of your cares as a result of He totally understands.
