14 Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death. 15 Only in this way could he set free all who have lived their lives as slaves to the fear of dying.
Insight- He had to become one of us in order to die for us, the only way to break the power of the death was to die! This is the message of the gospel , that I owed a debt I could not pay and Jesus paid a debt he did not owe. In light of such undeserved grace, our hearts can only respond with love and obedience, any other response falls short…
Prayer- Jesus, what amazing and scandalous grace you have purchased for me, when I consider this, may my heart respond with gratitude and passion for living a life of trust and obedience. I give you my life today and surrender my fears to you. I love you, Amen.
