Hebrews 2:14-18

Hebrews 2:14-18
Contemporary English Version (CEV)

  Much has been made of Donald Trump's claim that his father gave him a 'small' loan of $1 million to start his career.  At the core of the outrage is the simple thought that Trump cannot understand us, is not like us, because he comes from a different background.
  For some time, humanity could make the same claim regarding God.  We could shout to the heavens that God just doesn't understand what it's like to be human, to walk this earth and be surrounded by humanity, trying to be faithful but struggling with temptation.
  But, thanks to Jesus Christ, we can no longer make this claim.  God knows what it is like to be human, and in Christ, God showed what a perfect human life looks like.  Due to his perfection, our imperfection is washed clean, and we can stand before God forever.  That is the picture of love, and we see it fully in Jesus Christ.
