Peaches n' Greens Salad

For this reason he had to be made like his brothers, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

Hebrews 2:17, 18 NIV

Jesus had to be made like us. Jesus had to be made human in order to be made into the incredibly loving, merciful, faithful, just, glorious, high priest that fully served His Father, God. He also had to be made human so that He could be the living sacrifice for our sins, as He shed blood on the cross and died - and rose again three days later!

He had to be made like us, so that we can relate to Him. We suffer and we say no one knows how I FEEL!

Jesus suffered. Jesus suffered miserably to death on a cross.

He had to be made like us, so we don't feel completely alone.

We feel trapped in temptation, claiming NO ONE KNOWS HOW HARD THIS IS!

Jesus was tempted. Over, and over, and over again.

I am amazed at how our Creator decided to give us His Son in such a real way. Jesus was made human so that we could really relate to Him in so many ways. It's so much more personal that way, and all the more we can be comforted in our many trials because Jesus Christ knows what we are going through.

Praise the Lord!

A peaches and greens salad, loaded with tomatoes, because even though Summer is over - organic peaches still have a huge place in my belly's heart! This is my, well, in Summer time was my go-to salad when the peaches were ripe. The juicy goodness of both peaches and tomatoes make this bowl require zero salad dressing, and the sweet fruit dances with the greens all over your billions (accurate? I don't know, ask Google) of taste buds. If peaches are slowly leaving your produce section, feel free to use any juicy fruit. Even a handful of mandarins, or a bunch of navel oranges, shoot - grapes, apples, cucumber, mango, bananas - have fun with your fruit and green salads! There are no limits, restrictions, or rules. Okay, there is one rule: if it tastes gross, don't eat it. I don't know how well bananas and tomato will "dance" on them taste buds... but feel free to go wild!
