Before we start, we wish to say a prayer for all those that have been affected by the St. John River flooding. Let’s pray for hope and help for all those in trouble with the water damage that God will help them through this. Amen.
This part of the journey is called Jesus, the heir of all things. Let’s read Hebrews 1:1-14 and focus on verse 2. No book gives us so many descriptions of Jesus and the work of Jesus as does the book of Hebrews. In it, Christ is said to be God’s final Word. In fact if your were to read all 13 chapters; you will see there are many titles and descriptions for Jesus but the one that captures Jesus (the man) and the work He did is in Heb. 1:2 “heir of all things”. We also have an inheritance; the eternal inheritance that God has promised to His people (me and you) and secured for them in Christ. We are to trust in Jesus with our daily needs, and through Him, (as God has told us) we will be inheritors of His kingdom.
1 God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, 2 has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world; 3 who being the brightness of His glory and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, 4 having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For to which of the angels did He ever say:
“You are My Son, Today I have begotten You”?
And again: “I will be to Him a Father, And He shall be to Me a Son”?
6 But when He again brings the firstborn into the world, He says: “
Let all the angels of God worship Him.” 7 And of the angels He says: “Who makes His angels spirits And His ministers a flame of fire.”
8 But to the Son He says: “Your throne, O God, is forever and ever; A scepter of righteousness is the scepter of Your kingdom. 9 You have loved righteousness and hated lawlessness; Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You With the oil of gladness more than Your companions.” 10 And: “You, Lord, in the beginning laid the foundation of the earth, And the heavens are the work of Your hands. 11 They will perish, but You remain;
And they will all grow old like a garment; 12 Like a cloak You will fold them up, And they will be changed. But You are the same, And Your years will not fail.”
13 But to which of the angels has He ever said: “Sit at My right hand, Till I make Your enemies Your footstool”?
14 Are they not all ministering spirits sent forth to minister for those who will inherit salvation?
