Today’s devotion for today is based on Hebrews 2:14. “Since the children have flesh and blood, he (Jesus) too shared in their humanity.”
Sharing our humanity was not peaceful and serene for Jesus. Jesus traded the angel chorus of heaven for the initial sounds of cattle lowing and sheep baaing. And those sounds would change as he grew up, to dismissive comments, shouts of rejection, cruel mockery, and even death chants. He set aside his glory to become one of us so that by his suffering and death, we, as the angels said the night of his birth, we were given peace before God.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Dear Jesus, thank you for sharing my humanity. Thank you for keeping the law in my place. Thank you for carrying my sins. Thank you for being my Savior, for without you, I will not be able to stand before God on Judgment Day declared innocent. In your holy name, I pray. Amen.
