Jesus Knows

Isaiah 40:29

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”

Max's Message:

Jesus has been there. He experienced "all the pain, all the testing" (Hebrews 2:18). Jesus was angry enough to purge the temple, hungry enough to eat raw grain, distraught enough to weep in public, fun loving enough to attract kids, weary enough to sleep in a storm-bounced boat, poor enough to sleep on dirt and borrow a coin for a sermon illustration, radical enough to get kicked out of town, responsible enough to care for his mother, tempted enough to know the smell of Satan, and fearful enough to sweat blood. But why? Why would heaven's finest Son endure earth's toughest pain? So you would know that "he is able... to run to the cry of... those who are being tempted and tested and tried" (Hebrews 2:18). Whatever you are facing, he knows how you feel.
