The Seed of Abraham

By Bible Names of God

      "For verily He took not on Him the nature of angels; but He took on Him the seed of Abraham." Hebrews 2:16

      This suggestive title surely draws a picture well worthy our consideration. Why did He not take on Himself the nature of angels? Do not the fallen angels need help? Are they inferior to men? Will they evolve into good angels? No, but those angels who fell, did so in full consciousness of all that it meant. He came to fallen man and took upon Himself the "seed of Abraham" because He longed to lift us to heights above those ever known to angels.

      Our Lord, the wonder of Thy work for us astonishes us. Keep us, we pray Thee, from being selfish. Help us to tell the story of Thy love to our fellowmen. Amen.
