Scripture Reading(s)

Hebrews 1:1-4

In the past God spoke to our ancestors 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 also 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.


Justin-Holmes1.jpgAs we discussed in the previous two devotionals, Jesus was both human and divine. In his humanity he was tempted like all men and remained sinless so that he could be the sacrifice and salvation for all mankind. However, in his divinity and by his position in the heavens, he was since seated at the right hand of the Father. Indeed, one of Christianity’s oldest and most accepted creeds states that Jesus ascended into heaven and is seated at the Father’s right hand.

For us and for our salvation
he came down from heaven;
he became incarnate by the Holy Spirit and the virgin Mary,
and was made human.
He was crucified for us under Pontius Pilate;
he suffered and was buried.
The third day he rose again, according to the Scriptures.
He ascended to heaven
and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
He will come again with glory
to judge the living and the dead.
His kingdom will never end.

Nicene Creed (2nd paragraph)

It is right to give Jesus the praise he is due as he was the sacrifice for man and truly God in the flesh. If Jesus were merely a man he would be praised as Mary is praise but he is not just a man. He embodies the divinity of the Father. Thus, he is due all the highest honor and glory. No mere man but God incarnate.
