The Two Natures in Christ "The Worship of the Two Natures"--Martin Chemnitz
"Worship which looks to Christ and apprehends Him whom it adores believes that according to both natures Christ hears our prayers, sees our sufferings, helps and aids us; but particularly the church believes that through His nature, which is of the same substance as our own, by which He is our brother, we have access to the Deity Himself. And because He was tempted in His flesh with our infirmities, therefore our worship stands firmly on the faith that Christ is a merciful High Priest and sympathizes with our infirmities. (Heb. 2:14 and 4:15)"
