Jesus Christ came to die for our sins, but that’s not the ONLY reason He came. God wanted to show us that even though He is …

All powerful (Omnipotent),

All knowing (Omniscient), and 

Everywhere at the same time (Omnipresent)…

There were still some things that He COULD NOT DO.

I’m not talking about the old cliché, that God can do everything but fail…yes that’s very true.

God wanted us to know that with even through all His power and authority, He could still empathize with our fragile, weak flesh. 

Being a perfect, all-powerful, all-knowing Spirit, God could never…




Get sick

Feel weak

Feel hungry

Get a stomach ache

Feel tempted sexually

But most importantly God could never


Jesus came to SUBMIT Himself to endure the weaknesses of a body so that He could feel what we feel…that He too could have the human experience.

Stop and GIVE GOD SOME PRAISE for loving us so much that he would, “Take a long walk in our shoes”. I think He deserves it. Don’t you?

Hebrews 4:15 (NKJV)

15 For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.



God bless you! I'm a husband, father and ordained Minister since 1996. I serve as an Associate Minister at Oak Spring Church Arlington TN, a suburb of Memphis. I'm a professional Copywriter for a Fortune 500 company, published Gospel songwriter and owner of an independent label, Al-Go-Rhythm Music. My main spiritual gift is Exhortation...I'm a natural encourager. I love the word of God and sharing it from a "Wow, I never thought of it like that before" perspective. There's so much fresh revelation in God's word that is just as relevant today as it was as it unfolded. I hope my daily devotionals enhance your walk with God, taking you beyond BLESSED to BLESSTIFIED.
