Hebrews 1:1-4

1 In the past, God spoke to our people through the prophets. He spoke at many times. He spoke in different ways. 2 But in these last days, he has spoken to us through his Son. He is the one whom God appointed to receive all things. God made everything through him. 3 The Son is the gleaming brightness of God’s glory. He is the exact likeness of God’s being. He uses his powerful word to hold all things together. He provided the way for people to be made pure from sin. Then he sat down at the right hand of the King, the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became higher than the angels. The name he received is more excellent than theirs.

I see that our God is committed to working with humanity to reveal truth to the world at large. I see that He uses mere mortals to convey divine messages. However the human whom he appointed his greatest messenger is himself divine! This human messenger also hung the stars in space, he keeps the world turning!

God came to earth to speak his greatest revelation to the world, yet he still spoke it through humanity. The Son of God reveals God perfectly in a completely human way! This blows me away!

I can know God now, I can understand what I need to understand and I can draw near to the infinite because the infinite became finite and drew near to us. Not only this but the Son completed the redemption that could only be completed by a man. He is both the greatest prophet and our great saviour.

Jesus I love you, I cherish the day you were born on the earth. You open my eyes to see God, you cleanse my heart to draw near!

    Interesting fact
    ——————–
    The greek New-testament word for ‘Prophet’ is the same word used for ‘Poet’.
    It means, a person gifted at expositing divine truth.
