Real Life Experience

December 10
Another week of laying low has helped my headaches. A close friend said, "You may actually learn to like this slower pace of life!"  Just four more days on the heart monitor, but whose COUNTING!!!!

Take time today to appreciate God's plan to come to earth in human form, as Jesus, and participate in "real life experiences."  What a way to relate!  Jesus went through everything from a birth canal to being buried in a tomb.  No, ladies, I know he didn't personally experience childbirth, parenting or a spouse, but he walked closely beside it.  Jesus makes an awesome advocate for us because of his first hand human experiences.  We can't cry out, "God, you don't understand!"

Jesus is called our High Priest, who sits on the throne of heaven and can sympathize with us.  All God's plans are brilliant! Do you trust in Him today?

"Since the children are made of flesh and blood, it's logical that the Savior took on flesh and blood in order to rescue them by his death.  By embracing death, taking it into himself, he destroyed the Devil's hold on death and freed all who cower through life, scared to death of death.  

It's obvious, of course, that he didn't go to all this trouble for angels.  It was for people like us, children of Abraham. That's why he had to enter into every detail of human life.  Then, when he came before God as high priest to get rid of the people's sins, he would have already experienced it all himself-all the pain, all the testing-and would be able to help where help was needed."
