God wanted us to know that he knows

While we were studying Titus chapter three this evening at Bible study, we discussed the grace of God in Christ.

This grace is not just some “better felt that told” idea. It is expressed in scripture so that we can understand it.

In Hebrews 2:14-15 there is this: “Therefore, 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, and might free those who through fear of death were subject to slavery all their lives.”

God wanted Jesus to become human because he wanted us to know that he knows. Jesus is divine, but did not come to earth that way. He came as a human being. He felt hunger, thirst, pain and death. He experienced all these things to show us that God wanted us to know that he knows. That is the grace of God, too.

Now, when you embark on your daily grind in the morning, you might want to think about that. It might help.
