“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
It is so easy for us to get distracted by events and the words of this world that make us feel terrible. That is about the time we let our self-talk, you know, the talk in our minds about how alone we are, how nobody really understands…been there, done that myself, too often!
The thing is Jesus does know, he came down from heaven and lived as a man on earth. He lived an everyday life, not just a miracle making life. He interacted with people, he got frustrated with others, he felt grief and sorrow, he went to weddings and funerals, he was treated poorly by many and treated with love and respect by others.
He lived a life on earth just like you and me…no matter where you are, how you are feeling, trust in Jesus, talk to him about it today…
“Therefore, since we have a great high priest who has gone through the heavens, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to the faith we profess. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are – yet was without sin.
Let us approach the throne of grace with confidence, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help us in our time of need.”
