The Superiority of Jesus

In moments of quiet reflection, especially during Christmas, the amazing reality of Christ’s love and power may fill your heart more than usual. He wants to be intimately involved in your life. Through Him, you can understand God’s profound love and intention for you.

He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
– Hebrews 1:3 ESV

You see, a long time ago, God spoke to your ancestors through prophets, but today He speaks to us through His Son, Jesus. Jesus is described as the “heir of all things,” and it’s through Him that God made the universe.

Imagine the same Jesus who holds the cosmos together, is the same person who is eager to hold your life together, to bring order, purpose and joy even in the midst of chaos. While you live in a chaotic culture, you are more than what the culture says you are. You are who Christ says you are. You’re not merely an observer of this truth but a recipient of His love, a beneficiary of His power and a participant in His kingdom.

You are part of a grand narrative God is weaving together through His Son.

Jesus made a way for you to be free from the burden of sin and to step into a life of freedom and purpose. The superiority of the Son invites you into a journey to discover the depths of God’s love, the boundless opportunities for growth and the joy of living in a relationship with Jesus.

This Christmas is the perfect season to accept His invitation into a fuller, joyous life in relationship with God. Embrace the name of Jesus and rest in the encouragement from knowing Him. Invite Him into your heart and understand that He is with and for you.

Today’s One Thing
Reflect on Hebrews 1:3, allowing the reality of who Jesus is to sink deeply into your heart. Spend a few moments each day in quiet prayer, seeking to know Him more. Jesus is your foundation and the one who brings simplicity to chaos.
