Tempted in all points like we are

As to our future troubles for next year and the remnant of our days, Jesus Christ has borne them all before. As for temptation, he “has been tempted in all points like as we are, yet without sin.” As for trials and sorrows, he has felt all we can possibly feel, and infinitely more. As for our difficulties, Christ has trodden the road before. We may rest quite sure that we shall not go anywhere where Christ has not gone.
