He’s traveled these waters.

The writer of Hebrews said, “We have not an high priest who cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin” (Heb. 4:15).  Christ knows exactly what we go through, so He is able to help us (Heb. 2:18).  He is a perfect High Priest who ever lives to make intercession for us (Heb. 7:25).  He experienced hunger, thirst, and fatigue.  He was raised in a family.  He loved, hated, and marveled.  He was glad, sad, angry, sarcastic, and grieved.  He was distressed over future events (such as His crucifixion).  He exercised faith, read Scripture, and prayed all night.  He poured out His heart over the pain of man and wept when His own heart ached.  The Lord has been through all that we go through–and more.  He’s sympathetic, and He defends us.  Christ is our faithful High Priest, always interceding for us.

(John MacArthur, The Master’s Plan for the Church, p. 75)
