We’re your kin

He sent his own Son in a body like the bodies we sinners have (Romans 8:3; NLT).

All who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers (Luke 2:47; NLT).

Love your enemies! […] Pray for those who hurt you (Luke 6:27-8; NLT).

Jesus replied, “Who is my mother? Who are my brothers?” Then he looked around him and said, “Look, these are my mother and brothers. Anyone who does God’s will is my brother and sister and mother” (Mark 3:33-5; NLT).

**********************************************

Lord,

You had a mortal body,
Just like ours,

And the finest human mind
There’s ever been.

Plus, you have such perfect love
For all the world,

And the wisest ever soul –
Yet we’re your kin.
