For this reason he (Jesus) had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. – Hebrews 2: 17-18
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. – Hebrews 3: 1
JESUS was tempted and He suffered just like us, because He was fully human in every way! This is something to mull over – If God had come on His own to save the world, it would have been difficult for us to relate to Him – We could have never managed to come close to His splendor and power. Therefore, He sent His Son, Jesus in human form, so that we could relate to Him and follow His Holy ways.
Since our sins are now forgiven, all we need to do is ‘fix our thoughts on Jesus’ – His sacrifice, His wounds, His blood, His love and His Holiness.
See to it, brothers and sisters, that none of you has a sinful, unbelieving heart that turns away from the living God. But encourage one another daily,as long as it is called “Today,” so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness. – Hebrews 3: 12-13
