READ: Hebrews 1
MEMORIZE: “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word...” – Hebrews 1:3
Read this verse over and over again. Let it resonate in your heart. Become familiar with the words. Memorize it before you move on and read the rest of this devotion.
THINK: Though the authorship of Hebrews is uncertain, we can be certain of the message of the book: God’s plan to redeem history came in the form of his son, Jesus.
In The Message, Eugene Peterson translates the verse “The Son perfectly mirrors God…” Consider the purpose of a mirror: to display in perfect clarity a faithful representation of an object or person. Think about how incredible it is that Jesus came to be a mirror of God to the world!
Next, consider the monumental act of sustaining ALL things. Think about how amazing it is that Jesus does this, that he is vital to the vast scope and progression of all human history! In what ways does the significance of Jesus in the world impact your view of him?
PRAY: Go stand in front of a mirror and consider Jesus, who mirrors God. While looking at your reflection, ask God for the courage and guidance to help you mirror Jesus to the world, reflecting him as you go about every day.
LIVE: Think about at least one way that you might reflect Jesus to your world today. Then do it!
