“MAN” – He Helps Us When We Are Tempted

  • Jesus experienced the ups and downs of human life. He was hungry, thirsty, tired, hurt, misunderstood, and even tempted.  Thankfully, Jesus overcame His temptation in the wilderness, and others throughout His life.  He understands our struggles.
  • Hebrews 2:17-18 – Therefore, in ALL things He had to be made like Hisbrethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God…For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.
  • Hebrews 4:15-16 – For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all pointstempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.
  • The struggles are real, but with Christ’s help they can be overcome. When we win a victory, it brings glory to God and joy to our hearts.


“WORKING” – He Prays For Us & Makes Intercession For Us

  • He makes requests on our behalf and brings our prayers before the Father. This is INCREDIBLE because The Lord Jesus cares for us and knows what we need. He asks the Father directly on our behalf.
  • John 17:20-23 – “I do not pray for these alone, but also for those whowill believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You;
  • Romans 8:34 – Who ishe who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us.
  • Hebrews 7:25-26 – Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always livesto make intercession for them. For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens;
  • 1 John 2:1 –My little children, these things I write to you, so that you may not sin. And if anyone sins, we have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous.
  • I am in awe that we have One so great in heaven who prays for us, intercedes, and advocates!


“ABOVE” – He Provides Endurance & Focus for Us

  • Hebrews 12:1-3 – Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls.
  • He is Preparing a Home for Us
    John 14:1-2 “Letnot your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 
  • He is Preparing to Come Again
    John 14:3 – And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also
