Jesus understands every weakness of ours, because he was tempted in every way that we are. But he did not sin! So whenever we are in need, we should come bravely before the throne of our merciful God. There we will be treated with undeserved kindness, and we will find help.Hebrews 4:15-16
Jesus understands us because he lived a life as we live our life. Jesus did not come into this world as a king, but he was born into a low income family that struggled through life just as we do today. Jesus never used any miracles for himself but went through life as we go through life. Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage; rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. (Philippians 2:6-7) Jesus experienced every temptation we experience, and life just as we experience life, therefore he understands everything we go through.
Jesus loves us perfectly and is compassionate concerning what we go through in this life. And those in his family, he comforts and guides through life with his love and divine power. I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy. Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live. (Psalm 116:1-2) Whatever we go through, the Lord will comfort us and lift our spirits.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. (2 Corinthians 1:3-4) Just as we are comforted by the Lord, we are to comfort others, especially during Christmas season. Seek to comfort everyone and especially those that are in need for comfort, such as those experiencing loss of a loved one, those that are homeless, or those that are physically ill. We can bring Christmas to them by bringing them love and joy from the Lord.
Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26) This Christmas seek to bring love and joy to those who are in need. Through our motivation and the divine power of God, we can bring love, peace, and joy to everyone. This season seek to bring Christmas to those in need, because it is better to give than to receive. In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: “It is more blessed to give than to receive.” (Acts 20:25)
Today bring comfort to everyone with love, peace, and joy. Reveal the compassionate heart of Jesus, and seek to bring Christmas to those in need.
Prayer: Lord, open the doors to bring Christmas to those in need. Fill my heart with compassion for others and motivate me to bring your comfort, love, peace, and joy to everyone. In Jesus’ name, Amen
