Scripture: Hebrews (NIV) 1:10 He [God the Father] also says [to Jesus, God the Son], “In the beginning, O Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 11 They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. 12 You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.”
Observation: In this first chapter of Hebrews, we find several quotes from the Old Testament of God speaking about Jesus, God the Son, and to Jesus. Jesus is the creator and He is greater than what He created. In these verses we see the eternality of Jesus compared to the temporary status of creation.
Application: How foolish I am when I put my trust in earthly things and not in the Great Creator Who became my Savior! It is not how much of His creation I can call my own, but do I possess HIM as my Lord and Savior?
Prayer: Lord Jesus, to call you mine is the greatest honor and privilege I can know in this world. You are my Lord. You are my Savior. You are my Friend. You are my way to heaven. Thank you for accepting me as your friend and providing the forgiveness and cleansing I needed for entrance into heaven. Amen
Making friends for time and eternity!
