Former President George H.W. Bush was sitting in a wheelchair with his head shaved and holding a little boy with a bald head. The 89-year-old President Bush saw members of his secret service detail suddenly walking around baldheaded. Upon investigating, Mr. Bush learned that one of the agent's sons, Patrick, was being treated for leukemia. The 2-year-old lost his hair due to the treatments. President Bush shaved his head to show his support. Bush connected with the family in a very real way. He and his wife, Barbara, lost their second child, Robin, at 4-years-old nearly 60 years ago. The former leader of the free world was identifying with human weakness. Letting them know he understood and was with them.
Listen closely to this message of how Jesus became like us. “Since then the children share in flesh and blood, He Himself likewise also partook of the same….therefore, He had to be made like His brethren in all things, that He might become a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For since He himself was tempted in that which He has suffered, His able to come to the aid of those who are tempted.” (Hebrews 2:17-18)
God put on human flesh to identify with us. He wants us to know that He knows all about us, not just because He created us, but because He lived among us. He knows your temptations on a personal level. He knows everyone of your struggles. You can come to Him without fear of being turned away. He understands and has provided forgiveness for when we have failed, and strength for our struggles. Come and learn of Him!
