Hebrew 1:1-3, Wow!

Wednesday, October 04, 2006

Doesn’t it happen to you that God’s word is new every time you read it? His Word is indeed living and active, sharper than any double-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and spirit, bone and marrow, discerning the thoughts and intention of heart (Heb 4:12).

Since I was so touched by Romans 8 and Hebrews 4:14-16, I began reading Hebrews. And just reading the first 3 verses blew me away!

Hebrews 1:1-3
1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high.

Here is what I find so wow. Jesus is:
• Appointed heir of all things (I therefore have no worries)
• Through Whom the worlds are made (worlds, not just our world)
• The brightness of God’s glory (just that, brightness of glory … wow)
• The express image of God (we can see God now!)
• Upholds all things by get this – the word of God’s power (I cannot even to comprehend what it means, the word of power … wow!)
• He had by Himself purged our sins (by Himself – we can only go to God through Him and Him alone)
• Sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high (we serve a King)
