Hebrews 2 10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren….
To bring many sons (believers) to glory… to come to the full understanding that Jesus isn’t ashamed to call us brethren… to understand the fullness of His acceptance of us right now as Christians…to realize that we are of the same Father as Christ: these are the reasons that Christ suffered and died. He was the Pioneer of our faith, the captain of our salvation, and in order for Him to bring the divine experience into our human realm in a way that truly reconciled mankind with their Creator, He had to die.
And praise God, He did die, and because He did,we are one with the Father. Look at this: ‘both He that sanctifieth (sets apart, makes men holy) and they who are sanctified (are set apart, are made holy) are all of one (Father).” You and I have been set apart and are made holy and are now one with Christ and therefore we are one with the Father.
It is the answer to what Jesus prayed in the garden before the crucifixion. “Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching, That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me. (John 17:20-21 AMP)
Dear Christian, wherever you are, and whatever you are, Jesus isn’t ashamed to call you brother.
