Hebrews 2:11

Hebrews 2:11 – Both the one who makes men holy and those who are made holy are of the same family. So Jesus is not ashamed to call them brothers.

           There are many Christians who do not understand the Truth this verse provides. They know that God Loves them and that Jesus saved them, but beyond that there is no revelation.
           First we must understand that this verse starts off by talking about Jesus and us. “The one who makes men holy” of course refers to Jesus. He is the only one who can make people righteous and holy before God. Then we see the verse referring to “those who are made holy.” That is talking about you and me and anyone else who has accepted Christ as Savior.
           So we established that Jesus makes us Holy, but then we see this verse go to an entirely different level. It goes on to tell us that we are in the same family as Jesus. And on top of that Jesus is not ashamed to call us brother and sisters.
           We are in the family of God, we are His children and Jesus is our brother. When we look at God and Jesus it is hard to picture that we are right there with them. If God had a family portrait above His fireplace you would be in it.
           In Romans Paul talks about how we as the church are the body of Christ and we are seated with Him in heaven. That means we are seated next to God. It doesn’t get any better than that.
           If you have not come to a complete revelation of this truth, pray that God opens your eyes to it. In today’s world there are so many without family. Parents abandon their children; children run away from their parents; there are broken families everywhere. You name it, it’s out there, but now you are welcomed into the family of God. This is a perfect family.
So whether you came from a broken family or a pretty good one, come to God and be welcomed into His family. He has a place for you no matter what your earthly situation is and He calls you His children.
