Children of God through Jesus

10It was fitting that God, for whom and through whom all things exist, in bringing many children to glory, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11For the one who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one Father. For this reason Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters, 12saying, “I will proclaim your name to my brothers and sisters, in the midst of the congregation I will praise you.” 13And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again, “Here am I and the children whom God has given me.” 14Since, therefore, the children share flesh and blood, he himself likewise shared the same things, so that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by the fear of death. 16For it is clear that he did not come to help angels, but the descendants of Abraham.17Therefore he had to become like his brothers and sisters in every respect, so that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make a sacrifice of atonement for the sins of the people. 18Because he himself was tested by what he suffered, he is able to help those who are being tested. (Hebrews 2:10-18, NRSV)

Jesus understands our struggles in life because He was one of us and faced adversities and trials. Jesus did not use the power He had to keep himself from suffering but let everything go and became one of us so that when we call out to Him He understands.

Jesus is not ashamed of us and calls us brothers and sisters and understands what is happening to us. He gets how we falter, even though he didn’t.

Jesus trusted in God to see Him through and showed us that we can trust in Jesus to get us through.

Jesus understands your life and situation. Trust in Him!
