Yeshua has always been fully one with the Father, but for awhile he was humbled to become man and dwell among us. He experienced temptation and suffering and death for our sins. He has made a way for us to be reconciled with the Father, despite our sin which separated us.
Jesus Briefly Humbled
9But we do see Him who was made for a little while lower than the angels, namely, Jesus, because of the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.
10For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things, and through whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to perfect the author of their salvation through sufferings. 11For both He who sanctifies and those who are sanctified are all from one Father; for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
“I WILL PROCLAIM YOUR NAME TO MY BRETHREN,
IN THE MIDST OF THE CONGREGATION I WILL SING YOUR PRAISE.”
“I WILL PUT MY TRUST IN HIM.”
“BEHOLD, I AND THE CHILDREN WHOM GOD HAS GIVEN ME.”
14Therefore, since the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same, that through death He might render powerless him who had the power of death, that is, the devil, 15and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives. 16For assuredly He does not give help to angels, but He gives help to the descendant of Abraham. 17Therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, so that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. 18For since He Himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, He is able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.
How many of us are willing to humble ourselves in the service of the King? Let us submit fully to the Lord our God. Let us seek to do his will rather than our own. If we must humble ourselves or suffer hardship to do so, then ask him for humility and courage. Yeshua sets a great example for us to follow.
