Passage: Hebrews 4:15-16 & Hebrews 2:17-18

Are you tempted?

He was tempted in all points, like as we are, yet without sin


[Beloved], Are we tempted to distrust God? so was [the Lord Jesus Christ]: are we tempted to murder ourselves? so was He: are we tempted with the bewitching vanities of this world? so was He: are we tempted to commit idolatry, and to worship the devil? so was He (MATTHEW 4:3-10; LUKE 4:1-13). So that herein we also were alike; yea, from His cradle to His cross He was a man of sorrows and acquainted with griefs, a man of affliction throughout the whole course of His life.

And observe it, He was made so, or subjected thereto by the ordinance of God; nay, further, it behoved Him to be made so, that is, to be made like unto us in all things, the better to capacitate Him to the work of His priesthood, with the more bowels and compassion. We will read to you the text; “Wherefore in all things it behoved Him to be made like unto His brethren, that He might be,” qualified to be, “a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of [His] people. For in that He himself hath suffered being tempted, He is able to succour them that are tempted” (HEBREWS 2:17,18).
