Hebrews 1

What we learn about Jesus from Hebrews 1
  • Heir of all things (1:2)
  • The world was made through Him (1:2)
  • He is the radiance of God's glory and the exact representation of His nature (1:3)
  • Sustains all things by His powerful Word (1:3)
  • Made purification for our sins (1:3)
  • Sits at the right hand of God (1:3)
  • Is better than the angels (1:4)
  • All the angels of God worship Him (1:6)
  • He is the Unchangeable One. (1:12)

Lord I praise you because You are these things and so much more. Please let me never settle for just a basic understanding of who You are, may I never be satisfied with just milk Lord but in the same breath may I never overlook the simplicity of the gospel and get bogged down in theology. I want to press on towards maturity as Heb. 6:1 commands me but I need your discipline to keep my eyes fixed on You the author and perfecter of my faith (Heb. 12:2). When theology gets in the way Lord remind me of Emma Kate who simply picks up Your Word, turns the pages, and says, "Mommy do you know what this page says, it says Jesus loves me."
