Hebrews 1:3-5, 13-14
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. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”?… To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”? Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

Angels, in my head, have always been the sweetest of creatures who have a soft heart, a gentle demeanor, look pretty/handsome, have fluffy white wings and are always watching out for us. This is what I assimilated probably from all the greeting cards, movies and books that refer to them and in a way they are a representation of God to us. Jesus Christ was born of humble means, grew up in hard times, was challenged by every religious leader and was crucified for us, not as pretty a sight or life as that of angels. To some, angels are more than just nice beings and are considered worthy of worship and today God explains to us who is worthy of our worship and why.

When we consider God, we like to believe that in God is majesty, glory, honor, power, riches, peace, joy, and so many things worthy of the King of Kings. When we consider Jesus, it is hard to equate Him as the Son of God because He seems so lowly and more a prophet or teacher than the one who sits at the right hand of God the Father in Heaven. However, God clearly establishes Jesus as His own Son and God as His Father. After Jesus’ cruel death, God raised Him up from the grave and placed Him in Heaven on His right hand and offered to give Him His enemies as His footstool. With all of this, God shows us that Jesus is worthy of our worship and praise and not the angels in heaven or any man on earth. I pray today that you and I will receive Jesus as God’s own Son and ascribe to Him all glory and majesty worthy of the Lord of Lords.

In His Loving Service,

      Deb,
      It is wonderful to sit back and reflect on life and appreciate how much God has done for us. Exalting Jesus and giving Him the Highest place in my life is so easy when He makes me the focus of His love. I pray that God will help me show others how much He loves them too.
      Blessings,
      Vineet

    For the most part liked your post. The only part that stood out was that you said Jesus was martyred. The first martyr was Stephen in the book of Acts. Jesus did not die for standing up for His faith, and we must remember that Scripture in Isaiah 53 shows the death of Christ coming primarily from God the Father and then in the book of John, Christ voluntarily gives up His spirit. Jesus established a faith, He is the author and perfector of our faith, that many have died for, and many still die for.

    Also, brother, I do want you to know that I love how you have glorified His position based on Scripture.

    Thanks.

      Hi Jason

      Thank you for your comment and for presenting Christ’s death not as that of a ‘martyr’ but rather He gave himself up for us. I agree with you and have therefore changed the word to crucified. The reason I used martyred was that Jesus was killed for his religious beliefs and that cannot be debated. The Jewish leaders of that time were threatened by Jesus’ religious views and claims of being the son of God that they killed Him.

      However, in the conversation between Jesus and Pilate recorded in John 19:11 Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me if it were not given to you from above. Therefore the one who handed me over to you is guilty of a greater sin.” Jesus certainly knew well before that He was to be killed for the salvation of the world and was obediently following God’s leading. There is no question and so I made the change but the reason I previously used martyr was only that the word martyr means a person who is killed because of their religious beliefs.

      I pray that you will be blessed by the Lord for correcting me and I pray that you will grow in wisdom and love for Him and I certainly look forward to your comments in future. Just saw your blog and am eager to read more.

      In Christ, Vineet
