Check out the Hebrews Challenge Here
I like how the writer of Hebrews cuts straight to the point. In the past, God has spoken in a variety of ways, but now He's speaking through His Son, Jesus.
The writer is announcing to his audience that there is one focus that he is going to hone in on...and that is Jesus. So, what can we learn about Jesus from chapter one?
Heir of all things.
Involved in creation.
The radiance of God's glory. (I love this!)
Exact representation of God.
The sustainer of all things.
Sits in authority in Heaven.
Has authority over angels.
What we believe about Jesus, determines how we will live. As some nerds out there might recognize from a movie..."Your focus determines your reality."
The writer of Hebrews suggests that there is a singular focus. And that is Jesus.
The line that grabs my attention is that Jesus is the sustainer of all things.
I've been looking at milrinone...vents...pamidronate as sustainers of life.
But Jesus is better.
That breath you just took. He gave you. That one too. He knows the number of your days. He sustains life.
When my focus is singular, I know my hope is singular as well.
