The Logic of Incarnation - Hebrews 2:14-15 December 22, 2015

S - Hebrews 2:14-15 - Because God's children are human beings made of flesh and blood, the son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could He break the power of the devil - who had the power of death. Only in this way could He set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.

O - As I read the first few chapters of Hebrews, I see the reaffirmation of Jesus' deity. The writer of Hebrews unfolds then the "logic of incarnation." Jesus is/was God - but the only way to rescue people who are made to have eternal inheritance - is for He himself to become flesh and blood, that is the only way that He could die and offer His death as a sacrifice - once and for all people.

A - Because I see even more of God's great love for me, He willingly became like me (who would do that?), I know He knows all that I experience. I can truly come to Him in faith with boldness knowing He understands and cares ....and that He can/will help me through my struggles.

P - Father- thank you for reaffirming this truth to me. You understand everything about me because you yourself experienced all of it. My faith is stronger and I will not hesitate to keep bringing things to you.
