Jesus Is The Greatest


Heb 1:1-4 (NIV)  In the past God spoke to our forefathers 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 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.

Heb 2:1-4 (NIV) We must pay more careful attention, therefore, to what we have heard, so that we do not drift away. 2 For if the message spoken by angels was binding, and every violation and disobedience received its just punishment, 3 how shall we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? Those who heard him confirmed this salvation, which was first announced by the Lord, to us. 4 God also testified to it by signs, wonders and various miracles, and gifts of the Holy Spirit distributed according to his will.


Just like a child that has never met his parents and longs to know them, God knew that we would want to know him. God has always been revealing himself to his creation, in the past he used the prophets by using dreams and visions and he even spoke to Abraham and Moses personally.

But now God has revealed himself in a better way. He has given us his son, which is an exact representation of himself, just like looking in a mirror.

The scripture says that Jesus is:

• Heir of all things
• Creator of the universe
• Sustainer of all things
• The radiance of God’s glory
• Our Savior

• Sitting at the right hand of God.
• God’s son
• Worshipped by God’s angels
• Going to rule forever on his righteous throne

Wow, just like a small child that believes his dad is the greatest, we should be even more so impressed that the God that created us has everything under control.

Therefore since we have an awesome and righteous God we must be very careful that we do not ignore his plan for making us right with him, if we do then how will we escape our just punishment for everything that we have done wrong?


I know that my creator is the awesome God of the universe. I will thank him for caring about me and for making me right with him.


Thank you Lord for your great salvation!
