The heart of the Christian faith is all about the person and work of the Lord Jesus Christ.  We believe that Jesus is the way, the truth, and the life, that salvation is found in no one else.Some wonder, “Can one person really be the answer for all who believe?”  The original recipients of the book of Hebrews were struggling with this question. 

So, the author of the book of Hebrews wasted no time in reminding his audience that Christ is supreme.  In the opening paragraph, he made seven positive affirmations that remind us of the Supremacy of the Lord Jesus Christ.  Soak in these truths.

 

CHRIST IS. . .

1

[Jesus is]  appointed heir of all things – -Jesus is the Crown Prince and he will reign as King.

2

[the Son is the one]  through whom [God the Father] made the universe  – Jesus is the creator of both  time and space

3

The Son is the radiance of God’s glory – –

4

and the exact representation of his being  – Jesus is the  Imprint of God – -Indeed, he is God.

5

[Jesus sustains] all things by his powerful word.  Think about it; our ongoing existence depends on Christ who upholds all things.

6

[Jesus] provided purification for sins Jesus is the perfect sacrifice. 

7

[Christ]  is seated at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven.  His death, burial, and resurrection complete, Jesus took a seat, in his rightful place of preeminence. 

Have no doubts.  Christ is supreme.
