5. Jesus Identifies With Us


 Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He Himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, and release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham. Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. – Hebrews 2:14-17

We celebrate Christmas because Jesus

  • took on flesh and blood to become “Elder Brother” for the family of the redeemed
  • entered the prison to free the captives
  • took away Satan’s “right” to rule by allowing him to “unlawfully” take His perfect, sinless life
  • is our High Priest who completely satisfied God’s righteous standards

Thank you Lord for setting me free from the bondage of sin.
May my celebrations this season reflect my freedom in you.
