For it was fitting for Him, for whom are all things and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons to glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. 11 For both He who sanctifies and those who are being sanctified are all of one, for which reason He is not ashamed to call them brethren,
What a wonderful statement: he is not ashamed to call them brethren! Do you realize that Jesus Chris is not ashamed of you? For the one being sanctified and the one who sanctifies are one. They are united together in such a way that for God to be ashamed of you would declare that He was ashamed of His own Son.
This bread and wine are laid out before you and you are invited to the table by a Savior who is not ashamed to sit and eat with you. But I am a sinner you say and rightly so! But, when Jesus was accused of eating with tax collectors and sinners such as us, Jesus replied that he did not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance. He did not come to those who are well, but he offers healing grace in this bread and wine to those with the mortal sickness of sin.
So come to the table you baptized, believing sinners. He is not ashamed to have you here. Come, taste and see that the Lord is good.
