Hebrews 1-2~ Day 94~ What great hope!

"The Son is the radiance of God's glory and 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." (1:3)

"Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet." (1:13)

I love these verses!  Jesus provided purification for me and all my enemies (those evil spiritual forces-Eph. 6:12) will become his footstool! Ha!  It's so triumphal!!  It's this hope that the Christians of Paul's time needed to be reminded and encouraged.  The return of Jesus wasn't happening as fast as some were expecting and the Jews were fighting hard against this new "sect".  These encouraging words helped remind the believers that Jesus will come back and he will be victorious.

 What a great reminder for us as well in this post-Christian culture we find ourselves in today!  I bet I am as encouraged by these words as the Christians back then! Jesus will come back and he will be victorious!!

What stood out to you in the reading?  What has been your favorite letter so far!
