He began his ministry hungry, although He is the Bread of Life.
He ended his ministry thirst, although He is the Water of Life.
I was tired, even though He is our rest.
He paid tribute, even though He is the King.
He was accused of having a demon,
although He freed others from demons.
He cried, even though He wipes away our tears.
He was sold for thirty pieces of silver, although He redeemed the world.
He was brought as a sheep to the slaughterhouse,
although He is the Good Shepherd.
He died, though by His death He destroyed the power of death.
This paradox that was written in the fourth century and it shows us that Jesus stripped himself of everything to experience what each of us goes through here on earth. It is because of this truth that He is our Mediator between God and men. "For we do not have a high priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who has been tempted in everything as we are, but without sin." Hebrews 4:15
He is our advocate who intercedes for us to the Father. He made the greatest sacrifice in coming to earth as a man, limiting himself in a corruptible body, and going through the transition of time. He willingly came to reconcile us to the Father. His only purpose is to be an intermediary between the divine and the earthly. Why? Because he loved us and continues to love us unconditionally!
John 3:16 says, "For God so loves the world that he has given his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in him should not perish, but have eternal life." “For there is only one God, and only one mediator between God and men, the man Jesus Christ, who gave himself as a ransom for all, of which he bore witness in due time." 1 Tim. 2:5-6
