He Came to Suffer

Christmas is a celebration of Jesus’ willingness to suffer so he could sympathize with our suffering and become our high priest.

Hebrews 2:10,17-18

Hebrews 5:7-10

Hebrews 4:14-16; 2:17 – Jesus suffered on purpose so that he could be an understanding and helpful high priest to us.

  1. What a concept. He came on purpose to suffer for us. So much of our lives we spend on avoiding pain or suffering or even inconvenience, but we are called to have the mind of Christ. Surely that means being willing to suffer for others. Great reminder!!
