“God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 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; 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” Hebrews 1:1-3
Sometimes the routineness of religious activity can dull my view of Jesus. I can get stuck in a rut, even though it is a really nice rut, of church attendance, Bible study and prayer meetings. But once I slow the pace a bit the question arises…..where is Jesus?
It is the mercy of God that He reveals to us when we have become content with the activities of religion and have lost sight of the Saviour. Even in the midst of our seeking after Him we can become more focused on the seeking than on Him.
So this is where I found myself as I sensed the Lord telling me “look unto Jesus.” So I started looking in Hebrews and these first few verses literally took my breath away as I saw the glory and power of Jesus Christ so overwhelmingly presented:
The glory that emanates from Him
The divinity of His person
His amazing power in the creation and continuance of all things
His completed work of redemption
His exalted heavenly position
This is our King. This is our Redeemer. This is our Friend.
Look upon Him and love Him. Look and live.
