One of the most difficult things for we as followers of Jesus to grasp is not necessarily his divinity, but his humanity.
The fact that Jesus slept, ate, had human bodily functions, was tempted by greed and sex like we are, is very, very unnerving to many.
Here's what I want you to catch. Many times it's not in the divinity of Jesus (or the wonderful fact that he is God) that I receive healing, but in his humanity (or the fact that because he is man, he totally identifies with my needs, wants and hurts.
Let's take as an example the idea of grief and mourning. Jesus mourned. Jesus grieved. Jesus felt the loss of friends and family deeply.
Somewhere, somehow, we have come to believe that when we grief, we need to put on a happy face and not be "unspiritual" by crying or showing our pain. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!
Jesus weeps when his friend Lazarus. He weeps when he overlooks the city of Jerusalem, soon to be destroyed. He weeks over all losses and devastations that can possibly fill our hearts.
He grieves with those who grieve and sheds tears with those who cry.
I'm thankful for that today. In your grief, wherever you may be - realize that there is someone who completely understands - and cries with you. His name? Jesus.
