Christ, the Revelation of God

Hebrews 1: 1-3

“In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3 The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the 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.”

God is revealed in Christ.  Christ the Son is the glory of God that walked among us. He is God incarnate; God in human form, the same God that created the universe.  Through our knowledge of Christ we know God.

God's Purpose for sending His Son to  live on earth was to provide human beings with the path to salvation, the path of faith.  When we come to faith, God’s spirit dwells in us.   The Spirit enables us to live Christ-like lives. Our lives are to be examples of Christ for the world to see.

Who do people know when they know us?  Hopefully, they know an example of Christ.

May the love of Christ be with you

Rev. Eric Lanier (Retired)
