Hebrews 1 – 10
Our God is a Spirit being, unlimited by space and time. He is transcendent, high above us in every way. By our own effort and intelligence, we could never know Him.
But He speaks to us. He continually reaches out to communicate with us. He longs for us to know Him.
Since the birth of our race He has been speaking to us in many different ways. He speaks through the creation of which we are a part. He speaks through a variety of human messengers. He speaks through laws and stories and songs.
But in these last days He has spoken to us fully and finally through His own Son, Jesus Christ. Christ is the all-powerful, all-creating Word of God. He is God’s will in action. He is the radiant light of God’s presence and the exact representation of God’s very being.
In Christ, God’s revelation of Himself is complete.
In Christ, our cleansing from all our wrongness is complete.
In Christ, our reconciliation with God is complete.
God has joyfully removed every barrier between Him and us.
In Christ, He has fully equipped us to live holy, godly lives.
In Christ, He has fully provided for our eternal future.
All that our all-wise, all-powerful, all-loving Father ever wanted for us
is complete in Jesus Christ.
Each of us, every believer, is on a journey into that future. Ours is a journey of faith. We don’t know the route the journey will take us, but we know where it is leading. Our destination – our destiny – is Jesus Christ. We are traveling from Him, through Him, and to Him.
Faced with such a beautiful destiny, don’t slip backward. Move forward by faith into all Your Father has for you.
Father, as I trust You,
my reality is as vast as You are.
I share in
Your goodness, and
Your unlimited future.
