I know!

"I understand."
How comforting it is to hear those words and sense that they are coming from the heart.  Each and every one of us has need of such in this life.  Too often, however, one can only sense that when they are with Jesus.

I used to be just like you;
in some ways still am I.
But something happened deep in me
now I'm a different guy?
I am no better than you are, 
I go through all the same,
BUT GOD, He's caused me to excel--
all glory to His name!

I used to be just like you.

Am I any better?
To look at it THAT way, the same,
it would become a fetter!
He wants you just the way you are
and He'll do all the rest;
retaining His humility
that others may be blessed!

Yes, I used to be just like you,

and I have something you need!
May we break bread together and
let Jesus intercede!
I understand.  I empathize.
I know how you are treated.
Come--there is One place to go
where such won't be repeated.

As 'Christians,' we are to be like Jesus: understanding and not judging.  Once one learns that we will listen and we care, they may just desire The One Who dwells in our heart!

So we are called...
