IT’S ABOUT HIS SON
During this Lenten season, I have desired to write on Jesus and His finished work on Calvary’s Cross for several weeks. I find I have no words. The singular thread woven throughout my thoughts is the title of this blog: “It’s about His Son.” Words have failed. But God-I do love that phrase, has written a few words about His Son and His affection for Him. I found them in His written word: the Bible…imagine that! See if you can unearth them in the passage below. Let me know what you discover.
In many separate revelations [each of which set forth a portion of the Truth] and in different ways God spoke of old to [our] forefathers in and by the prophets, [but] in the last days He has spoken to us in [in the person of a ]Son, Whom He appointed Heir and lawful Owner of all things, also by and through Whom He created the worlds and the reaches of space and the ages of time [He made, produced, built, operated, and arranged them in order]. He is the sole expression of the glory of God [the Light-being, the out-raying or radiance of the divine], and He is the perfect imprint and very image of [God’s] nature, upholding and maintaining and guiding and propelling the universe by His might word of power. When He had by offering Himself accomplished our cleansing of sins and riddance of guilt, He sat down at the right hand of the divine Majesty on high, [taking a place and rank by which] He Himself became as much superior to angels as the glorious Name (title) which He has inherited is different from and more excellent than theirs. For to which of the angels did [God] ever say, You are My Son, today I have begotten You [established You in an official Sonship relation, with kingly dignity]? And again, I will be to Him a Father, and He will be to Me a Son? Moreover, when He brings the firstborn Son again in to the habitable world, He says, Let all the angels of God worship Him. (Hebrews 1:1-6 Amplified)
Father is unequivocally delighted and satisfied with His Son. It’s about His Son. This Easter celebrate Him for Who He is: Son of God, King of kings, and Lord of lords. He is risen. Death and the grave are forever dismantled and conquered in His wake. He is seated in kingly authority and dignity at the right hand of His Father. Hallelujah! What a Savior.
