Thought for the Week
Jesus sympathises with our weakness
Hebrews 4v15,5v7-8 “Jesus … is [able] to sympathise with our weaknesses … During the days of Jesus’ life on earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission. Although he was a son, he learned obedience from what he suffered and , once made perfect, he became the source of eternal salvation for all who obey him.”
Excitement is in the air: Easter is almost here!! But first, next Friday is the special day on which we remember the death of Jesus. How it agonized Jesus as he approached the day of crucifixion. Yet in all his suffering and anticipation of suffering, he did not sin, nor did he lose faith in his Father. The writer of Hebrews reminds us that we are not the only ones who suffer; we are not the only ones who cry out in pain to God. The answer to Jesus’ prayer was not that he could avoid the pain, but that his Father would bring him through triumphant.
The victory is gained by pushing through, not opting out! May God give you the victory! And may you know that Jesus sympathises with you in what you are experiencing right now. And may God enable you to come through by the power of his Holy Spirit in you.
With love and blessing,
