For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.
The conclusion I have come up with for me is Jesus wanted to give us an example of what it looks like to be tempted and not to fall. He chose to be tempted because He knew who He was and what he was about.
It’s almost like…….. all right, I’ll go with you. But you have no idea what you have gotten yourself into. It turns out that he gave us examples of what to do in times of Temptation
It shows that it doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter how Holy you are, you can be tempted and Jesus showed how to overcome. One of those methods is to quote scripture.
I think it shows that you can overcome temptation even in one of your most weakened states. I am sure that Jesus was very weak from fasting for 40 days. He still overcame
He knew what he was doing just like he knew what he was doing when he went to the cross. Everything he did was for your/mine benefit.
Thank you Daddy that today I choose to live the life that you purchased for me.
