The Ultimate Price.

God is love. He is the true embodiment of what love is and what love should be. He exemplifies the true definition of love.

He so loved you and I so dearly that He “demonstrates His own love for us in this: while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” Romans 5:8. He paid the ultimate price: the ultimate sacrifice.

For God so loved the world– He loved so dearly the world that He gave His only begotten son to die for our sake (John 3:16).  He sent His beloved son to the world even when He didn’t had to. But the most beautiful aspect of Jesus coming to earth in form of human flesh is that He came so that He may relate better with us.
During His days on earth, “He Himself has suffered being tempted. He is able to aid those who are tempted” Romans 1:18.  Not only does He love us, He knows the feeling of being tempted. He lived the feelings of every sufferings and temptations we may be going through. He understands when we cry out to Him. Therefore, you cannot come to Him with the attitude of  “you don’t know what I’m going through,” or ” you don’t know what it feels like” because He, in fact, does. He knows. In fact, we know less about the pain of temptation than He does because even with all the temptations He experienced, He was with no sin and never gave in.

In 1 Timothy 2:5 we are told that there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus. Because Christ came and suffered and was tempted, He can better mediate our prayers to God. He knows exactly where we are coming from when we ask for forgiveness for falling short of His glory.

Jesus had to be made like one of us “so that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people” Romans 1:17. Not only did He leave heaven to come to earth to die for our sins (1 Corinthians 15:3), but He did so also to be a great advocate for us to God. What manner of love!

When you think nobody knows what you are going through, God knows.
