Scripture in the Morning #70
The author of Hebrews continues his teachings on the person and work of Christ. So far, he has told us that a) God speaks to us through Christ in His Word, b) Jesus is the heir of all things, c) He has the exact same nature as God the Father, d) He upholds the universe in the power of His Word, e) He has eternally purified us of our sins, f) He sits with the Father right now, g) angels worship Him, h) Jesus is God and His kingdom is now and forever, and just recently, i) He is the author of truth and finally j) He is mindful of us, ordaining all things that happen to us. And there is more…
Hebrews 2:7 You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor, 8 putting everything in subjection under his feet.” Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control.
Jesus was “lower” than angels while on earth 2000 years ago, but that was for a time. Jesus is now and always will be the ruler of everything — everything is in subjection to Him. NOTHING is outside His control.
Everything is under His feet. And, remarkably, we are in His hands. Nothing we face can defeat us for we are His and He controls all promising us grace all the way.
May we each this morning dwell on these realities and stand in awe of Christ Jesus and praise Him. It is amazing that He is our Lord. We could not be more blessed.
Have a great day as you consider just how our Lord has blessed you.
