Hebrews 1:3 NLT: The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.
My dear friend in Christ, you must understand that no one can know about the father without looking at the son. The Bible clearly puts it that He expresses the very character of God. Right from the fall of man in the garden of Eden, man has continually sought for ways to get to know God and His character but it all ended in futility until the coming of Jesus Christ. This was what gave rise to many religions, all seeking supremacy as the ones with better knowledge of God.
But today, we see Jesus, presented to us as the blueprint by which we can know God. Unless you know Him, you can never please Him or walk in His love and enjoy His benevolence. Therefore, we must concentrate our efforts in getting to know Christ in order for us to apprehend who the father is. Many misconceptions about God in the past was corrected by Jesus Christ when He appeared on the scene.
Jesus showed us that the very esence of God is love. He hates iniquity and injustice. He cannot be found in any of these. And so whatever you are doing that lack the very essence of God which is love, you must give it up and resolve never to return back to them. Only then will you be His friend. Jesus demonstrated this love by cleansing us from our sins through His death and reconciling us back to the father. Let us show gratitude for this great act of love and live as Jesus lived. Remain blessed.
Declare to yourself loud: Jesus I love you.
1. Heavenly Father, thank you for the gift of your son Jesus Christ, blessed be your Holy name, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
2. Please add your personal intentions.
