Jesus Went Through It All


"During the days of Jesus' life on the earth, he offered up prayers and petitions with loud cries and tears...." (Heb.5:7).

So..... What did all us, including myself, learn from a week of exploring the three times the Bible tells us that Jesus wept? I believe first of all that Jesus was certainly The Son of Man. In this respect, Jesus felt all the same things that we feel. He felt them on physical, mental, emotional, and social levels. Though it all we can believe this trustworthy statement... "For we do not have a high priest who is not able to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way...." (Heb.4:15). Sooner or later, we will all face our Gethsemanes... Even though we may not be able to rid ourselves of the burdens or handicaps, with loud cries and tears, we can do what Jesus did as we complete today's verse. "to the one who could save him from death, and he was heard because of his reverent submission" (V 7). We can take our problems to the Father, through the Son, with his promise to furnish needed help. We are living in a generation in which tears have been shed over the battles, disease, disasters, poverty, and disappointments that are inevitable in life. Through it all, we can find solace in the knowledge that we have a Savior who understands.... Praise the Lord....

Have a great day... T G I F Thank God I'm Forgiven.... Love mark Phil.4:11
