“Therefore, he had to be like his brothers and sisters in every way, so that he could become a merciful and faithful high priest in matters pertaining to God, to make atonement for the sins of the people.” (Hebrews 2:17, CSB)

As veterans, one of our favorite monikers is to call each other brother or sister. It shows that we are part of a unique family that served our country well. I know that many of you would do anything to always help your brothers and sisters and in all situations. That’s what I love about our veteran’s community. Recently, we have been able to help fellow veterans who have asked for assistance for various needs. This is one of the things that the leadership team cherishes to do.

Likewise, Christ our High Priest has helped all of us who have believed on Him for salvation. Hebrews 2:17 declares that we are His brothers and sisters in God. Because He loved us as brothers and sisters, he died for us to make a way for us to be a part of God’s family. Now look at the words of Hebrews 2:18:

“For since he himself has suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.” (Hebrews 2:18, CSB)

Not only did Jesus make atonement for our sins, but He also stands ready to help us in all of life’s problems we face. He is both the perfect sacrifice and priest for our needs. What a Savior!

Now with this knowledge in our hearts, let’s strive to live for Him and one another in all that we do. There will be many opportunities in the days ahead to put this into practice. Come along and help us serve our brothers and sisters and make a difference for the gospel of Jesus Christ!
