I haven’t read Hebrews in a while, so I’m looking forward to this week.
Reading Hebrews 1 and most of 2, I can’t hep but be struck by the supremacy that is Christ’s. It’s interesting that angels are used as a comparison, but it makes sense for new believers who had previously only heard about God and angels through the OT/Jewish Canon. Even so, pulling out all the old scriptures showing how Jesus is esteemed above all other things and then moving on to show how he humbly went to be lower than the angels he was above is kind of cool.
AND it is through this action that we are able to be saved. It gives salvation that humble side. Remembering that an all powerful being sacrificed of himself for broken humans, not esteemed angels. If you really think about it, isn’t that something worth telling people about? Isn’t it worth praising? Isn’t that someone worth following, even if you get nothing in return?
