LIFe with God: July 13-14, 2013

Scripture

Hebrews 1

Click here to read today’s passage on Bible Gateway

Observation

How is Jesus superior to the prophets? To the angels?

Application

Do I lessen the person, power, and position of Christ by equating Him to or only slightly above an angel or a prophet (or even Satan in regard to His power)? Do I give Him the glory, honor, and praise that are due Him?

Prayer

Pray today’s Scripture back to God:
Dear Father, Thank You that though in the past You spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at different times and in different ways, Your revelation of Yourself culminated in Your Son, the Lord Jesus, whom You appointed heir of all things and through whom You made the universe. He is the radiance of Your glory, the exact expression of Your nature, and He sustains all things by His powerful word. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of Your Majesty on high. So He became higher in rank than the angels, just as the name He inherited is superior to theirs. I thank You that His throne will last forever and ever, and I will spend eternity with You because of Him! I pray this in the Name of Jesus, Amen!

Pray to BLESS!

One good way to pray for people is to use the acronym BLESS to pray for God’s blessing on every area of their lives:

  • B – BODY (physical health)
  • L – Labor (their job or school)
  • E – Emotions (emotional health as well as guarding against letting emotions rule)
  • S – Social (relationships with family, friends, co-workers, neighbors, church, etc)
  • S – Spiritual (remaining true to God and growing in Him)

MEMORY VERSE OF THE WEEK:
Be serious! Be alert! Your adversary the Devil is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for anyone he can devour. Resist him and be firm in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are being experienced by your fellow believers throughout the world. – 1 Peter 5:8-9 (HCSB)
