Jesus Our Brother

Sun, Mar 07, 2021
For he who sanctifies and those who are sanctified all have one source. That is why he is not ashamed to call them brothers, Hebrews 2:11 (ESV) Last week we looked at Christ as the sovereign king of the universe. Hebrews 2 reminded us that He accomplished what Adam failed to do and in doing that he fulfilled the role as God's King over the world. In this moment we struggle to see it. Things are not as they should be, but they are also not as they will be. Christ will return to reign. We also saw that Christ was the author of salvation. We struggle with thinking of Christ as the sovereign king because he was ignored and martyred in his first advent, but even this suffering falls under his sovereignty because he used it to author salvation for us. All of this talk of kings may feel distant. None of us have lived in a palace. We rule nothing and we take no audiences with royalty. It seems very unfamiliar, but the writer tells us something else amazing about Christ. He is our brother. I want to encourage you to read through Hebrews 2 this week as we prepare for worship together. We will see a different and more personal connection to Christ and we will share communion together.
