Mark 2:5 (NIV)
Son, your sins are forgiven.
This is one of the few verses in which the Lord Jesus Christ addresses a fellow human being as "son." We are familiar with God the Father redeeming us as children in the Lord Jesus Christ. But how do we reconcile with the Son of God, our brother calling us His sons and daughters? Was the ancient of days referring to us that way from pure paternal instincts or was it more than that? Since the Father and His only begotten Son are One, the Lord Jesus Christ, who has created and redeemed us (Colossians 1:16, Genesis 1:26), is akin to our heavenly Father in that He shares the same authority and love for us.
