He Sympathizes with Your Hurts


 

Hebrews 4:14-16

 

For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin,” Hebrews 4:15.

 

 

He Sympathizes with Your Hurts

 

One reason it is so important to tell others about Jesus is that no other religion in the world has a God who cares about them. In most religions, Buddhism, B’Hai, Islam, Hindu and others, teach doing good works to gain points or merits. They have an image or god who is uncaring, unfeeling and dead. Furthermore, other religions teach humanistic ways to make this condemned and corrupted world a better place to live, but it is not working.

 

As Christians, we need to spread the good news of the gospel, and the Savior of the gospel. Jesus is the Savior who loves us immensely and is touched by our physical hurts and emotional disappointments. He came to earth and for thirty-three years was the God-man known to us as the Son of Man. Jesus both sympathizes and empathizes with us. Because of this, we can go boldly to the throne of grace in prayer, and He intercedes for us, petitioning God on our behalf. Verse 16 teaches we do not depend on our merits but on the perfect merits of Jesus Christ. Praise the Lord!

 

 

REFLECTION

 

Go to Jesus with your hurts, disappointments, needs and worries. He is the friend who will lift you before the throne of grace.

362 – Dec. 28 – THIS DAY IN BAPTIST HISTORY PAST


Krishna Pal preached the gospel among his people with great success.
 
December 28, 1800 – Krishna Pal, a Hindu from India, along with Felix, the son of William Carey, the pioneer missionary to that land was immersed and received believer’s baptism in the Ganges River before a great crowd, including the Governor of India. Krishna’s wife and daughter had also made a profession of faith in Christ but had faltered when they saw the large crowds. Dr. Carey had served for six years before he had seen his first convert and now it was Dr. John Thomas, his companion, who had faithfully served for 16 years to finally see some fruit from his labors. Krishna Pal, a carpenter, fell and broke his arm, and Dr. Thomas was called on to set it. After his work was done, he fervently preached the gospel to Krishna and his neighbors and set forth the folly of idolatry and set forth the great truths of Christianity. Krishna was moved to tears and sought further instruction and before long he openly renounced idolatry and the caste, professing faith in Jesus Christ. He in turn reached his wife and daughter and the three of them presented themselves for believer’s immersion. This news stirred up the natives and soon there was a mob of 2,000, who poured out vicious words upon him, and then dragged him to the magistrate, who immediately released him and commended him for the piety of his course, and commanded the mob to dispense. He even placed a guard at his house and offered armed protection during the baptism. For more than twenty years, Krishna Pal preached the gospel among his people with great success. He also composed a beautiful poem: “O Thou my soul, forget no more. The Friend who all thy misery bore; Let every idol be forgot, But, O my soul, forget Him not. Jesus for Thee a body takes; thy guilt assumes, thy fetters breaks, Discharging all thy dreadful debt: And canst thou e’er such love forget.”
Dr. Greg J. Dixon from: This Day in Baptist History Vol. I: Cummins Thompson /, pp. 544-45.
