Biblical Reflections: Hebrews 4:15

Hebrews 4:15 – For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.

When we are overcome by grief over sin, our spirit sinks low. It is at moments like these that we begin to realize the gravity of our sins. If we remain lost in this state, depression and anxiety can set in leading to worse things. Sometimes we feel the desperate pains and hopelessness of sickness and abuse. In all these things we have hope. Our hope rests not in our strength or doctors or even good friends and family for all these fail. No, our hope rests in Jesus, the Savior. He is our hope. Our life is hid in Him. We owe all to Him, and He will never let us down.

While He was without sin, He still understood the weakness of the flesh with its desires and needs.  This fact should concrete in our minds the notion that God understands us.  He sympathizes with our hardships, and He was willing to go as far as the Cross to show us His love and devotion.  We may demonstrate the same love and compassion.
