“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high…” (Heb. 1:1-3)
Jesus is the focus for us in these last days. He has shown us how to live and lead. He has demonstrated to us how to treat people and equip and develop them for the Kingdom. He is the One who made purification for our sins.
I have noticed an increasing hesitancy on the part of some Christian writers and speakers about using the name of Jesus Christ. Perhaps this is just me and the small sample of Christian communicators I read and hear. Have you noticed it?
Regardless of the offensive nature of Jesus’ name, we must use it because He is the One by whom God has spoken in these last days.
Take a moment to thank Him for all He is doing and has done for you and others you know and love.
Israel was in the wilderness only eating manna, which tasted bland. They complained that they didn’t have meat or any of the other tasty foods from Egypt. They said, “Who will give us meat to eat? For it was better for us in Egypt.” (Numbers 11:18)
There were 600K fighting men plus the families (at least 1.5 million total). Moses was told that the people would have meat to eat for a month. Moses asked how?
“And the Lord said to Moses, “Is the Lord’s power limited? Now you shall see whether My word will come true for you or not.” (Num. 11:23)
…but is the Lord’s power limited?
You know the story – quail was blown to the camp from the sea and vast amounts of quail flew to the camp all around. This is amazing.
So, with each of us, we have ‘something’ that seems impossible to God, but” is the Lord’s power limited?”
Take a moment to cast your impossible situation on the Lord. Thank Him that He can do anything.
I was reading and reflecting on who Jesus really is these last several days. There are so many ways to look at this topic. Here’s one that caught my eye.
“For by him all things were created,
in heaven and on earth,
visible and invisible,
whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—
all things were created through him and for him.
And he is before all things,
and in him all things hold together.” (Col 1:16-17)
This is mind blowing. Jesus is Lord, King, Ruler, Sustainer, and Creator. He is before all and there is none who can compare to him.
Take a few moments to praise Him and thank Him for Who He is. Thank Him that He has all things under His control.
