Morning Meditations: Hebrews (Day 2)

“Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil,  and deliver all those who through fear of death were subject to lifelong slavery.”  (Hebrews 2:14-15)

Again I am amazed at your plan, Yahweh. Your love and your wisdom are beyond understanding, that you conceived of such a plan and carried it out. In Jesus — coming in flesh and blood to live among and experience all the evils of this world in a frail earthly body like mine, being made like me in every respect, and suffering the wrath of my enemy — in this Jesus, you have destroyed the devil and his power of death and destruction.

And I am no longer afraid! I am not a slave to fear. You have conquered the enemy and have conquered death and you have set me free. You have given me liberty!

I receive your gift and live in your freedom!
