10/31/19: Hebrews 2:1-18; Psalm 103:1-22; Proverbs 26:23
Gracing most families is a special bond that keeps them caring for one another regardless of the miles they are apart, regardless of the time that passes and regardless of their individual changing priorities. Being a member of a family helps make all members “special” to one another.
The author of Hebrews describes how this special bond is raised to quite another level when he describes the relationship between members of the Body and the Lord, Jesus Christ.
Hebrews 2: 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. 12 He says,
“I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters;
in the assembly I will sing your praises.”[ 13 And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.”
