Memorization Monday - Hebrews 2:14

Heb 2:14 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,

We as human beings are flesh and blood. God is a spirit. And yet somehow, the Son of God took on Himself flesh and blood just as the children of men have. This verse gives one of the reasons: "that through death He might destroy the devil."  If you put this thought with verse 15 that we will focus on next week, you will see that it is the fear of death that puts us into bondage. Jesus Christ will ultimately destroy the devil and will ultimately also destroy death, thus freeing His children from that bondage that has enslaved us so long.
