Made Like Us

This will be a short post because I haven’t had much time this week to thoroughly go over a topic, so I will just leave a short post as some food for thought and understanding.

Every now and again I will hear the argument about how Jesus cannot be God incarnate because God is higher than men, therefore Jesus being a man cannot mean He is God.
I could make a huge post in response to this, although it would be better to talk with a pastor about this than reading a blog. And while many other passages would address this topic too, there’s one in particular I like to read and that clearly explains why God was made in a similar image to us.

Hebrews 2:14-18

Inasmuch then as the children have partaken of flesh and blood, He himself likewise shared in the same, that through death He might destroy him who had the power of death, that is, the devil,
And release those who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
For indeed He does not give aid to angels, but He does give aid to the seed of Abraham.
Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.
For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted, He is able to aid those who are tempted.
