Jesus Took on Your Frame (and Shame)

"For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham." (Hebrews 2: 16)

God became a man and shed His perfect blood of us, and He did this through His Son Jesus!

First of all, God has a greater appreciation of us human beings than His angels:

"For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned him with glory and honour." (Psalm 8: 5)

The original Hebrew for angels reads "Elohim", or God. The Lord created us in His image, greater than the angels!

Not only that, but everyone in the Body of Christ will judge angels, too:

"Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?" (1 Corinthians 6: 3)

Yet there is so much more about Jesus, who took on our frame, that is our humanity:

"For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin." (Hebrews 4: 15)

Never should we think that God does not know, nor let alone care, what we are going through:

"6Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: 7Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. " (1 Peter 5: 6-7)

We know and believe that He cares for us because He took all our sins on Himself:

"[Jesus] made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. " (Philippians 2: 7-8)

In His flesh, He died for our sins and the sin in our flesh:

"3For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh:" (Romans 8: 3)

Jesus took on our human frame and our shame, that we may receive His fame and acclaim:

"Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world." (1 John 4: 17)


"Now thanks be unto God, which always causeth us to triumph in Christ, and maketh manifest the savour of his knowledge by us in every place." (2 Corinthians 2: 14)
