First, because of Christ’s humanity, our high priest “has been tempted in every way, just as we are”. His full humanity means that Christ stands in solidarity with us, including being subject to temptation, and can “empathize with our weaknesses”
Scripture calls us to strive for true spiritual rest in God, anticipating the final rest we will know in Him. Find time to put away distractions today and ask God to help you experience a taste of His promised eternal rest.
