READING: Hebrews 1
Hebrews is a profound and powerful book that uses a wide variety of Old Testament passages to present a clear case for the superiority of Christ over everything that preceded Him. This book adds immeasurably to our understanding of His person and work, and it applies this understanding to the dynamics of spiritual growth in the life of the believer. Hebrews 11 is one of the most extraordinary chapters in Scripture, and it is the clearest exposition of the meaning and rewards of faith in the Bible.
Hebrews immediately launches into its theme of the superiority of the person and work of Jesus Christ by showing that He is the supreme revelation of God (1:1–3). Because He is worshiped by the angels, He is superior to them (1:4–14).
Lord, I confess that Your Son is the radiance of Your glory and the exact representation of Your nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power.
Meditation passage: verses 1–4, 14
