Today"s Thought .... Like Us Like Us Hebrews 2:17..... Therfore , it was necessary for Jesus to be in every respect like us , his brothers and sisters so that he could be our merciful and faithful High Priest . He then could offer a sacrifice that would take away the sins of the people . Jesus had to leave heaven to take on human flesh . He needed to be like us so that He could understand exactly what it was like to be " Us " . That's why he was not only our sacrifice but is now our advocate . So to me I can call Jesus my brother and I never thought of it that way before . Hallelujah for the Lamb !!!!!
