Jesus Understands You

jesus_understands_youThere are days when your whole world goes upside down. Things do not go as plan. You get a bad report from a doctor. You make a horrible choice. It seems life is too difficult. Maybe you have someone to talk to, and maybe you don't. Maybe you're in a situation where you feel beyond alone. That nobody in the world has a clue what its like to be you. I'm here to tell you Jesus does. As much as Jesus was God, he was human.

Jesus wept – John 11:35
Jesus slept – Mark 4:35
He was hungry and thirsty John 4:6-7
We know that Jesus got angry at the people selling things in the temple Mark 11:15
Jesus got frustrated in Matthew 17

14 When they came to the crowd, a man approached Jesus and knelt before him. 15 “Lord, have mercy on my son,” he said. “He has seizures and is suffering greatly. He often falls into the fire or into the water. 16 I brought him to your disciples, but they could not heal him.”

17 “You unbelieving and perverse generation,” Jesus replied, “how long shall I stay with you? How long shall I put up with you? Bring the boy here to me.” 18 Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of the boy, and he was healed at that moment.

19 Then the disciples came to Jesus in private and asked, “Why couldn’t we drive it out?”

20 He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” [21] [a]

Jesus Hated the Silent treatment, and had to operate under intense pressure:

Another time Jesus went into the synagogue, and a man with a shriveled hand was there. Some of them were looking for a reason to accuse Jesus, so they watched him closely to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath. Jesus said to the man with the shriveled hand, “Stand up in front of everyone.”

Then Jesus asked them, “Which is lawful on the Sabbath: to do good or to do evil, to save life or to kill?” But they remained silent.

He looked around at them in anger and, deeply distressed at their stubborn hearts, said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and his hand was completely restored. Then the Pharisees went out and began to plot with the Herodians how they might kill Jesus

Jesus Was Not Crazy About His Duties
“Father, if you are willing, please take this cup of suffering away from me. Yet I want your will to be done, not mine.” Luke 22:42 NLT

Jesus Didn't Take the Easy Way Out
Do you think I cannot call on my Father, and he will at once put at my disposal more than twelve legions of angels? Matthew 26:53

Jesus Understand Injustice

Jesus was innocent. Yet according to Matthew and Mark, Jesus was taken by the soldiers into the common hall, the praetorium, which was thronged with Roman soldiers. There, they stripped Him and mocked Him by putting on Him a purple robe and a crown of thorns. The prophet Isaiah anticipated this when he stated in Isaiah 52:14, “His visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men.” Jesus was beaten about the head and the body until He was almost unrecognizable.

Jesus was mocked. Matthew 27:42, “He saved others; himself he cannot save.”
