Hebrews 2:10-11 – Not ashamed to call us Brethren

Hebrews 2:10-11
10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,

-Verse 11 tells us everything we need to know about how great Salvation really is; we who are sanctified are made the same as the One who sanctifies us.  So completely are we removed from what we were and changed into what Christ is, that He has no hesitation in claiming us in front of anyone.  Think about every nasty, ungodly thing you’ve ever done and then think about what it would take for a Holy, Holy, Holy God to look at you and be pleased with what He sees.  Jesus Christ became sin so that you would never have to feel the weight of sin and He became shame so that you would never have to feel true shame.
