We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.——————————————-
Jesus didn’t shout from his lofty place in heaven for us to resist temptation. Jesus came to earth, became one of us, and experienced life as we do. Therefore in this identity with us, he is able to sympathize with our struggles to conquer. And from this identity he challenges us to conquer temptation as he did and has mercy on us when we fail.
