Hebrews 2:12-18 (NIV)
“12 He says,
“I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters;
in the assembly I will sing your praises.”[a]
13 And again,
“I will put my trust in him.”[b]
And again he says,
“Here am I, and the children God has given me.”[c]
14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— 15 and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. 16 For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 17 For this reason he had to be made like them,[d] fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.”
Jesus Christ has loved us from the very onset. he has loved humanity for a very long time and He still does. From the scriptures read, He called us brothers and Sisters. Waow.
Look how wicked, heartless, evil, sinful, corrupt and unholy we are, not to even talk of the countless times we rejected Him, insulted Him and disgraced Him. Yet still, Jesus called us His loved ones(Brothers and Sisters)
He had to make Himself like man so that He can feel what we feel and be able to save us.
“Because He has suffered being tempted, He is able to save us from temptation.”
I mean, What kind of man is this? What kind of heart does He have? what kind of love is this? It is high time we come to the realization of the great love Jesus has for us and be appreciative.
Dear Lord Jesus, i want to be like you. Please help love unconditionally. Please give me a compassionate heart like yours. thank you for saving me. i love you Jesus. Amen.
