Saturday – 8/3/14
It’s obvious, of course, that he didn’t go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us, children of Abraham. That’s why he had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people’s sins, he would have already experienced it all himself—all the pain, all the testing—and would be able to help where help was needed. (Heb 2:16).
So … whether it’s food, sex, money, drugs, mind games, power, or any of all the other minefields that are constantly surrounding us, Jesus has experienced them ‘and‘ gotten a way through!
Papà, we really don’t want to be in this mess anymore, please help us to get out – and stay out …! X
