Hold onto your dreams and believe things will fall into place because of grace. Even the grave will be no barrier to His grace! This day with God, the journey continues as we read Hebrews 1:5-14 and as we continue to learn His ways and give Him praise.
In today’s passage, we note that the purpose of ministering spirits known as angels is to serve those who will inherit salvation. They speak life and bind one to Christ as an intermediary between God and humanity.
Salvation is through the Son and the reading today makes the point that Christ is the Son who the angels worship. It’s important to understand that Christ sends us guardian angels to watch after us. He sits on the throne of His kingdom as the righteous one, designer of the universe, conqueror, and the one in charge of all the angels.
In Colossians 1:15-20, we get a good picture of the supremacy of Christ.
The Son is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn over all creation. For in Him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for Him. His is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. And His is the head of the body, the church; He is the beginning and the firstborn from among the dead, so that in everything He might have the supremacy. For God was pleased to have all His fullness dwell in Him, and through Him to reconcile to himself all things, whether things on earth or things in heaven, by making peace through His blood, shed on the cross.
Because of the cross and our acceptance of the supremacy of Christ whose authority is greater than angels, our sins have been purged. Guide us with Your limitless power and with this power may the world will be impacted in a positive way. Like a ripple in the water, may our words encourage others by speaking life with faith, hope, and love so the ripple grows into a wave. Amen.
