Mark 6:2 2 When the Sabbath came, he began to teach in the synagogue, and many who heard him were amazed.
“Where did this man get these things?” they asked. “What’s this wisdom that has been given him? What are these remarkable miracles he is performing? (NIV)

The only way to really experience and understand what someone is going through is to walk in their shoes.  Jesus, Who is the Word of God, separated from God and became a human like us for about 33 years.  During this time He was completely human though still filled with the Holy Spirit, the 3rd person of the God-head.  This made it possible for Him to experience all the we, humans, experience.  He is no longer human but has returned fully to being the Word of God.  Sometimes we think that God can’t possibly understand what we are up against.  We thin His commandments are too difficult for us to fully obey.  But, God, through Jesus, His Word, fully understands because He has fully experienced.  We are fully flesh and blood, human beings.  When we accept Jesus as our Lord and Savior and follow and worship Him, we receive the infilling of the Holy Spirit.  Some day we will shed the flesh and blood but our Spirit, birthed by the Holy Spirit, will live with God.  We will be given new bodies, different from our sinful nature and live in the very real and tangible presence of God, the Father, God the Son and the Word and God the Holy Spirit.  What a glorious time that will be.  Knowing what is in our future enables us to face anything we must face in our temporary flesh and blood human state.
