The Humanity of Jesus

Despite his growing reputation, the Nazarenes couldn’t believe in Jesus because he was, after all, just one of their local lads. He was Joe and Mary’s son. Worked in his Dad’s carpentry shop. Doesn’t this all show how truly human Jesus was and isn’t that so encouraging? In our relationship with Jesus we can focus on his divinity and forget that he was also a human being, just like us, in all ways except sin. Jesus really knows what it’s like to be ME ! There are times in my prayer when that can be such a great help!
