Today's Verse : Hebrews 2:17


December 15, 2011

He had to be made like his brothers 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.
-- Hebrews 2:17
There are not many things the Bible says Jesus "had" to do. This
is a key one. Jesus had to be one of us. Notice that he did this so
he could be like us, his brothers (and sisters) in every way. The
reason? So he could be the perfect and faithful high priest who not
only made atonement for our sins, but was also the atoning
sacrifice for those sins. Incredible!
Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the incredible sacrifice you made so
I could be adopted into our Father's family and become your younger
sibling in our eternal family. Thank you for this grace that was
motivated out of your love and carried out by your loving
faithfulness. Through your name, Lord Jesus, I offer my praise and
thanks to our Father. Amen.
