Read Hebrews 1:1-4

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.

Reflect

  • How will my walk with Jesus be different as I labor to get unstuck and to begin growing again?
  • How can I better understand Jesus as both fully human and fully divine?
  • How does the fact that Jesus is God Himself make me feel?

Because Jesus came to us in human form, we might forget that He is also very much divine. We look at Jesus--dressed as a man, using the same language as man, expressing the same emotions as man--and we lose sight of the fact that He is so much more than a man. Jesus isn't an angel or a prophet; He isn't merely God's spokesperson, like Isaiah, Jeremiah or Ezekiel or the angels Michael or Gabriel. Jesus is God Himself --the exact representation of His being. He is the full revelation of God, and we have no clearer view of God than through Jesus Christ.

In Hebrews 1:1-4 we hear that God took communication with us to the ultimate level when He gave us His son, Jesus. In Old Testament times, God spoke to His people through the prophets. But with Jesus, He speaks directly to us. There is no better connection to God than through Jesus Christ Himself.

Pray

Lord, thank you for making the ultimate sacrifice in giving me Your Son Jesus to speak Your word to me. Amen.
