The Word, Jesus Became Flesh (Hebrews 1:1-2)
"In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe" (Hebrews 1:1-2)
Part 3 of 3
Jesus came to communicate God's message of love toward us. To do this, he entered into humanity. "The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth" (John 1:14).
Jesus came to the world he created with a simple but glorious message, that God loves us and has provided the way for reconciliation through the Son. Jesus came to proclaim the good news that God was not holding mankind's sins against them and He would provide the way to the Father. The messengers that God previously sent forecasted these events and longed to see them transpire. "For I tell you that many prophets and kings wanted to see what you see but did not see it, and to hear what you hear but did not hear it." (Luke 10:24). What they longed to see was Jesus, the expression of God's love!
Even in the deep sea, the creatures that live there draw life from the Son. They testify to this incredible message of God's love in the person of Jesus Christ. He is the author of all things and willingly offers eternal life to all who call upon his name. "Now this is eternal life: that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom you have sent" (John 17:3). The message of Jesus is clear, he came to show us the Father and to reconcile the world unto himself (II Corinthians 5:19). We are forgiven, accepted and loved. Jesus has communicated perfectly God's true nature and character. By knowing Jesus, we know the Father.
Tomorrow we look at Hebrews 1:3; Jesus is the Perfect Imprint of God’s Nature.
