Hebrews 2:11-18

According to Hebrews 2:5-10, Jesus came on Christmas to resurrect our glory and dignity. The rest of the chapter explains that He is not ashamed to call us His brother or sister and place us firmly in the family of God (2:11-13). Not only has He destroyed Satan’s exploitation of death (2:14-15), but He is our faithful and merciful High Priest that advocates for us (2:17-18).

Hebrews 2:5-10

The Book of Hebrews was written to Jewish Christians who were suffering because of their allegiance to Christ. Their overwhelming temptation was to return to Jewish worship – return to the temple, to the sacrifices, to Moses, to set aside Christ and go back to the Law. Because of this, you have the Book of Hebrews where the writer lays out one of the greatest theologies on Jesus in all of Scripture. The argument of Hebrews is – why go back to what is inferior? Jesus is greater than Moses, Jesus is greater than Joshua, Jesus is greater than the Law, and Jesus is greater than Aaron and Melchizedek. Jesus is greater than the angels.

Proverbs

We know nothing about God’s plan unless we understand that it is a plan of love. When we are filled with the transforming love of Christ, when our hearts have been smitten by the mystery of that love, when what daily fills us is deep gratitude for His sacrifice and transformation, then our words begin to be words of love, words of service, words of grace, words of encouragement, words of peace, and words that that build and not destroy.

Proverbs

In Proverbs Solomon says that death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit (18:21). Wisdom says that words are powerful because they penetrate the soul and last a lifetime. Our words bless or curse. They build up or they destroy. They encourage or discourage. They nourish or weaken. They heal or hurt.
