"Since therefore the children share in flesh and blood, he himself likewise partook of the same things, that through death he might destroy the one who has the power of death, that is, the devil." ESV
Christ became human flesh and blood for the specific purpose of being the sinless sacrifice for our sin. If He would have remained fully God, He would not have been able to die. With a body such as we have, Jesus died and took the control of death from Satan. Now Satan cannot taunt us with fear about death and hell. By His death, Jesus Christ the door for us to pass through into eternal life.
Heavenly Father, we cannot even fathom how You went through this life without sin, though You were human like us. Give us eyes to see the reality of what You gave up for us, and by doing so, gave to us everlasting life. In Your name we pray, Amen.
