Sympathetic Savior.


[1 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death. For surely it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 1For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priesti n service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people.Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted. Hebrews 2:14-17 NIV. ]1 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death, he might break the power of him who holds the power of death—that is, the devil— and free those who all their lives were held in slavery by their fear of death.  For indeed it is not angels he helps, but Abraham’s descendants. 1For this reason, he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God and that he might make atonement for the people's sins.

    There was a time when executives disguised themselves to see what the lives of their workers were like. In some ways, t God in the form of Jesus was like that.  He concealed all of his glory to see what men were like. I often find it amazing that God did this. Why did he go through the fuss of growing up? Did he feel confined in a human womb?  He could have appeared as a man right away. In light of the passage above, I think God wanted to feel human weakness at every stage of life, from the vulnerability of a baby to the hormones of a teenage boy. Therefore he could be a sympathetic savior.
