Jesus Understands

Remember that Jesus Christ understands the agony of being rejected because He experienced it Himself.

When you touch the pain of rejection, Jesus sympathizes with you.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet was without sin.

The Lord is able to comfort you because He knows exactly what you’re going through. He understands your pain, having been there Himself. So we can rest our heads on a God who knows what it feels like firsthand. And He—the God of compassion—comforts us in such suffering.
