How many different ways do you communicate with people? Facebook, Twitter, and Outlook are all open on my laptop right now. And my I-Phone is lying beside me on my desk. I am prepared to communicate! At just about any time you can reach me by text, phone, Tweet, FB post, or email.
One more thing. My Bible is also open to the book of Hebrews:
In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 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. 4 So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. Hebrews 1:1-4, NIV
God speaks to His people
What?! The Creator of the universe reveals Himself and His ways to lowly mankind. This fact fills me with awe and wonder. God speaks to me – and to you – through His written word and through the Word.
How often do we stop and reflect on this incredible truth? God speaks to you. God speaks to me. God speaks…
God speaks through His Son
Jesus is the “radiance of God’s glory.” The Greek word doxa, translated as “glory,” refers to the luminous manifestation of God’s person. Jesus is the visible revelation of God’s nature and ways. Jesus physically and verbally represents God the Father. You want to know the Father? Get to know Jesus.
Sustaining, Superior Savior
The author of Hebrews wanted to make sure his readers did not minimize Christ. He packed the opening of his letter with powerful words to describe our Savior.
Let’s talk about the greatness of Jesus today! What descriptive words for Jesus do you see in these verses? What do they mean to you today?
