Good morning, Family:
Let’s begin our week knowing that we have divine placement in the kingdom of God. Allow the presence of God to flow through you. We are all partakers and demonstrators in the wonders of God. Allow the miracle of your redeemed life to shine through the darkness of this world.
Living Bible (TLB)
2 So we must listen very carefully to the truths we have heard, or we may drift away from them. 2 For since the messages from angels have always proved true and people have always been punished for disobeying them, 3 what makes us think that we can escape if we are indifferent to this great salvation announced by the Lord Jesus himself and passed on to us by those who heard him speak?
4 God always has shown us that these messages are true by signs and wonders and various miracles and by giving certain special abilities from the Holy Spirit to those who believe; yes, God has assigned such gifts to each of us.
5 And the future world we are talking about will not be controlled by angels. 6 No, for in the book of Psalms David says to God, “What is mere man that you are so concerned about him? And who is this Son of Man you honor so highly? 7 For though you made him lower than the angels for a little while, now you have crowned him with glory and honor. 8 And you have put him in complete charge of everything there is. Nothing is left out.”
We have not yet seen all of this take place, 9 but we do see Jesus—who for a while was a little lower than the angels—crowned now by God with glory and honor because he suffered death for us. Yes, because of God’s great kindness, Jesus tasted death for everyone in all the world.
