Tuesday, April 19th

For a short time Jesus was made lower than the angels, but now we see him wearing a crown of glory and honor because he suffered and died. Because of God’s grace, Jesus died for everyone. God—the one who made all things and for whose glory all things exist—wanted many people to be his children and share his glory. So he did what he needed to do. He made perfect the one who leads those people to salvation. He made Jesus a perfect Savior through his suffering. Hebrews 2:9-10

Today's thoughts from today's verses:

So often when it comes to the core understandings of redemption, we are like the person who relies on glasses but doesn’t have them on and is trying to manage anyway. What a difference when one puts their glasses back on and sees again with clarity the world around them. Our Scriptures for this week serve as spiritual glasses that bring us the clarity we need for the core understandings of redemption. Try it out with today’s Scripture. Read again with the thought that what it says will help you see with clarity the core understandings of redemption.

Our passage says that Jesus was made lower than the angels for awhile. This means that God the Son left his exalted state in the splendor of heaven to take on human form here on lowly earth. Next our passage tells us that we see Jesus now back in the splendor of heaven wearing a crown of glory and honor. During his time away from heaven and here on earth Jesus became the Savior of the world who suffered and died for everyone. Notice the words: “He did what he needed to do.” Jesus and Jesus all alone could be the Savior of the world and so our Heavenly Father did what needed to be done to make that a reality. He gave us Jesus and Jesus as the Savior of the world needs to been seen with full clarity.

Our passage also says that our Heavenly Father “wanted many people to be his children and share his glory.” We have just seen the fullness of what was done to provide the world with the Savior. These measures would not have been taken if it were not absolutely necessary. Here’s the point: we are not God’s children and we do not share his glory without a Savior and unless at some point while we are here on earth we embrace Jesus as our Savior and him alone, that’s the way it will be forever. The fact that we need a Savior to save us from our sins and that we are in eternal trouble if we don’t, needs to be seen with full clarity. Even as believers we get to the spot where we no longer see the core understanding of our redemption with full clarity. May we see with fuller clarity than ever before the absolute gift Jesus our Savior is and the absolute need we have for Jesus our Savior.

Today's prayer response from today's thoughts:

Lord, things get a bit murky sometimes for me. Please help me to see you and myself with full clarity. Help me to stand firm on the reality that there is one and only one way and that is through Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Help me as well to stand firm on the reality that I would be lost forever without my Savior and that I am found forever because of him. Amen!
