This Sunday I’ll be continuing my series from the New Testament book of Hebrews in Budapest. In reviewing chapters 1-6 I’ve just mined this gold nugget of truth:
“Therefore he had to be made like his brothers in every respect, so that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in the service of God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people.” (Hebrews 2:17 ESV)
Because He loves YOU, He came, He died, He rose and He lives, so we may live!!!!
In these days after the resurrection we do well to consider the supremacy of Jesus!
“He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much superior to angels as the name he has inherited is more excellent than theirs.”
Hebrews 1:3-4 ESV
His work is finished, he said so, let us rejoice in Him!!!
On day after Easter let us give God the praise He is due! He has defeated death; He has covered our sins; Today don’t let the mundane schedule let you lose the resurrection view. Let us say with the psalmist:
“Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who alone does wondrous things. Blessed be his glorious name forever; may the whole earth be filled with his glory! Amen and Amen!”
Psalms 72:18-19 ESV
The sun rose.
They went to the tomb.
They looked inside.
The tomb was empty.
“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures,” (1 Corinthians 15:3-4 ESV)
He is risen!
