You all know that Jesus was exposed to the frailties of human nature and its emotions. However, His strong connection with God shaped His character and sanctified His emotions. So He was able by God’s grace to resist every evil tendency or emotional bent. Thus He became a perfect example for us. So you can go to Him with your problems. You don’t need to be told that; you’ve heard it all your life. But it’s not that simple. It can be difficult to identify with Jesus, someone you can’t really see or hear. Ideally we should all just bring our problems, emotional and otherwise, to Him and that would be it. We would be at complete peace. However, sometimes it’s easier to connect with a friend or even a song.
Honestly, do you feel that Jesus can empathize with what you feel? Why or why not? Who do you feel truly understands you? What makes it easier to empathize with certain people?
