CHAPTER READ: Hebrews 1
SCRIPTURE SELECTED: Hebrews 1:3
3 The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.
OBSERVATION: If I want to know what God is like and who He is, I can look to Jesus for He came to be the visible expression of all that God is. It is Jesus who now sits at the right hand of God, after having gone to the cross and defeating death. He who was with God in creation, speaking and bringing our world into existence, now sustains everything by the mighty power of His command.
APPLICATION: It is amazing to think that this Jesus who could speak forth creation would lay aside that power to come to earth and lay down His life for us. That this same Jesus, having conquered death, now reigns supreme and is sustaining everything by the mighty power of his command! He is the One, I want to serve and give my life to! He is the One whom I want to run to when I need help!
PRAYER: Lord, on this Independence Day, I celebrate the freedom from sin which You provided for me. A freedom to choose whom I will serve and have as my Lord. I humbly bow at Your feet and celebrate my dependence upon You. I am Yours, just say the word! Amen
