Jesus (1)

For about 33 years, Jesus was a human being. He ate, drank, slept, walked, studied God’s Word, prayed, was baptized and went to parties. And Jesus felt emotions like us, too.
Our Bible Reading today talks about God’s children. Verse 14a says, “These children are people with physical bodies. So Jesus himself became like them and had the same experiences they have.” Jesus came to earth as a human. He was completely human.
At the same time, Jesus was completely God and completely perfect. That is how He was able to die for our sins. Jesus died in our place so that we could have our sins forgiven.
Also, because Jesus was human, He understands our joy, pain and sorrow. He can help us through good and bad times in our lives. I am so glad Jesus was human!
