Jesus became human. He became like one of us. In doing so, he did not diminish his deity; instead, he took on our humanity. This allows him to become our faithful and merciful high priest, to become the sacrifice for our sins, and to open the way for us to the Father. So how can we apply this truth? We can have full confidence in going to God in prayer whenever we need help. We can be humble and submit ourselves to God’s will, even to the point of surrendering our rights, privileges, and preferences. Finally, we can imitate Christ, by becoming like those we are sent to reach.
