Friends in Christ Weekly Message
February 2, 2013

     Since the children are made of flesh and blood, it's logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood in order to rescue them by his death. By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devil's hold on death and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.
     It's obvious, of course, that he didn't go to all this trouble for angels. It was for people like us, children of Abraham. That's why he had to enter into every detail of human life. Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people's sins, he would have already experienced it all himself - all the pain, all the testing - and would be able to help where help was needed.

Hebrews 2:14-18 (Message*)

We have a savior who understands what we go through. Our savior experienced the trials and tribulations of human life in order to be able to help us.

Our savior freed us from any need to cower through through life in fear of death. He himself conquered death, and through that freed us.

Thanks be to God for providing us such a wonderful savior. May we allow Christ to live in us, freeing us from the bondage of the world and allowing us to live fully, without fear.

Bill Samuel
