But Christ, as the Son, is in charge of God’s entire house. And we are God’s house, if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ. Hebrews 3.6
A Word of Hope
There has never been another birth, life, death and resurrection like that of Jesus. Jesus was destined be the sole heir as the Son of God, the breathing, walking, manifestation of God in the flesh.
When Jesus was sacrificed as the “Son” of God, bringing us the New Message it wasn’t so much that Jesus “brought” a message; He “IS” the message. He was sent to spread the Good News of Redemption, Grace, and God’s everlasting love. When he said, “it is finished”, it was, it is and always will be. Jesus is far more than any prophet; he has revealed something no other prophet could. It is finished…the old testament is over; the new gospel of Christ is alive and is to be shared with all human kind…this is the Good News.
We are as incapable of gazing directly in to the sun as we are to see the face of God. We can only see the rays of the sun as they filter through the atmosphere. In the same filtering way, Jesus is the beam of God’s glory and we see God through “rays” of the Son of God. In many ways, God spoke through a spectrum in the Old Testament and Jesus became the prism, collecting beautiful bands of light focusing them all into 1 pure beam for us to see.
Easter celebrations have ended and hopefully all hidden eggs have been found. I carry fond memories of gatherings where hidden gems filled with candy, money or those bearing beautiful decorations were hidden out of sight. Now, I enjoy seeking biblical gems of spiritual symbology to strengthen my relationship with God. Like the hidden eggs, some are easily found while others take a lot of internal searching to find the hidden pearls of wisdom.
Creator God, let us like Jesus, reach out and welcome one another into Gods Glory of everlasting love for all humankind. Amen
