Hebrews 2:9-10 – But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering death , so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in brining many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.
The author of Hebrews is listing out in detail the sacrifice Jesus made for all so we can see and remember how we are saved. By God’s grace Jesus was made low, died a suffering death to cover the sin of everyone for all time is glorified forever because of His obedience to the Father. Jesus, the creator who brought everything into existence overcame death and the grave to bring salvation to those who believe was made perfect through his suffering on our behalf.
Jesus, the creator who brought all things into existence, came to earth as a man and lived a perfect sinless life to die for me when I have no means of atoning for my sin on my own. As I think about this, it is amazing how great God’s grace and love is for His children. I must remember this is God’s plan for redemption for all from the beginning of time and live as someone who has faith not fear of death and share the Good News of Jesus with all in a winsome way.
Thank you for your grace and love in sending Jesus to overcome death and be our salvation. Let the Spirit lead me to grasp this daily as my greatest need and live it out in a way to honor you.
