Since the children have flesh and blood, [Jesus also] shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death — that is, the devil.

—Hebrews 2:14

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Did you know that Jesus is not only our Savior but also our brother? “He had to be made like his brothers and sisters,” the Holy Spirit (Hebrews 2:17). We were God’s lost children, so Jesus came and shared our mortality, our human skin with all its limitations, so that he could defeat our worst enemy, the evil death-maker Satan. Now through Jesus’ incarnation in human flesh, death no longer has its hooks in us or its hold on us. Jesus, our spiritual big brother, has defeated it. Our older brother is now at our Father’s side, interceding for us until we can go home to him (Acts 2:33Hebrews 4:147:25John 1:18 ESV).

My Prayer…

Thank you, Almighty God, for sending Jesus to be like me and live among people like me as one of us. As I think of your sacrifice and his love, I am overwhelmed by my insignificance in the vast universe, yet I am beloved by the Creator of it all! I am thankful that Jesus’ gift has made me your child whose older brother is Jesus. Some days, Abba Father, it is hard for me to wait for our family reunion. So, I wait in hope for our great reunion day. Please use me, dear Father, to help others know about your family, gift, and son! In Jesus’ name, I praise and thank you. Amen.
