Jesus Has Street Cred - Hebrews 2:10-18

Street Cred: Commanding a level of respect in an urban environment due to experience in or knowledge of issues affecting those environments ~ Urban Dictionary

When my husband and I decided to do full-time Christian work in Budapest, the advice we valued most came from former missionaries to Budapest. Lots of folks had wisdom, but these folks had "street cred."

I thought of this term when reading Hebrews 2:10-18

"Because God’s children are human beings—made of flesh and blood—the Son also became flesh and blood. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the devil, who had the power of death." (v.14-15, NLT)

God didn't need to come to earth to understand us, but He did. He walked in our shoes, faced our temptations, lived in our bodies.

Take time to read this entire passage (linked above) and thank God that Jesus has more than "street cred."

  1. Wow! 'He walked in our shoes, faced our temptations, lived in our bodies".
    I know this, but sometimes it is wonderful to hear it again, again . . . we only have a mere inkling of knowing how very blessed we are. Thank you :)

      It's truly incredible and it's good for us to hear about it often.
