Scripture: ” 10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered. 11 Both the one who makes people holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers and sisters. 12 He says, “I will declare your name to my brothers and sisters; in the assembly I will sing your praises.” 13 And again, “I will put my trust in him.” And again he says, “Here am I, and the children God has given me.”
Observation: Jesus and believers belong to God – we can be called the brethren of Christ because of God the Father.
Application: Through Jesus I am a child of God – Jesus is the Son of God – we belong to the same Father – wow! I never thought of Jesus as my brother! He is not ashamed to call me sister – wow! What a blessing!
Prayer: Lord, thank You for bringing me into Your family; calling me Your daughter, heir to the throne. Thank You for Jesus, my Saviour, my brother in Christ, who stands before You in my place, unashamed to call me His sister in Christ. Oh, what grace. Thank You Jesus, Amen.
