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.

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.
