Yes, by God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. ~ Hebrews 2:9 NLT
Jesus vs angels. Who is greater?
The answer is so obvious.
In fact, it’s on record in the books of Hebrews, chapter 1.
Jesus is God’s Son and He is greater than the angels.
And what did God have Jesus do?
By God’s grace, Jesus tasted death for everyone. ~ Hebrews 2:9 NLT
The Son of God died for us.
Us. Mere mortals.
And we’re not talking about any ordinary death.
Jesus died a horrific death by cruxifixion.
On top of that, He was tortured and marred beyond recognition before He died.
Why didn’t God just send one of His angels to die for us?
Because of His grace.
God didn’t put angels in charge of the business of salvation ~ Hebrews 2:5-9 MSG
Instead, He gave a part of Himself in the form of His one and only Son to save us.
Friend, we can never understand the boundless grace of God. But instead of trying so hard to understand it…why not just receive and enjoy it?
