Hebrews 1:1-4

1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to 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!
