Good morning.


While we are able to grasp the supremacy of Christ when we look at His divine nature (His divinity), we should also see His supremacy in His human nature (His humanity).


"But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. For this reason he had to be made like them, fully human in every way, in order that he might become a merciful and faithful high priest in service to God, and that he might make atonement for the sins of the people. Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted." (Hebrews 2:9‭, ‬17‭-‬18)


One of the functions of the priest was to, in effect, stand in the gap between man and God by making atonement in presenting the offerings on the altar. Jesus became man in order not just to present the offering, but become the offering - the Lamb that was slain, making atonement once and for all.


Jesus Christ became man in order to be tempted like man, yet overcome temptation. In His humanity He suffered, yet without hesitation paid the price on the cross in order that we might experience "at-one-ment" with the Father.


Because the fullness of God dwelt in Him in bodily form (Colossians 2:9) and through His obedience to the Father's will, we today, as followers of Christ can come into God's presence with rejoicing and gladness.


Our prayer today is that we will understand more fully the supremacy of Christ - both human and divine.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne

Good morning. You have reason to be content today. God is your portion. The idea of our “portion” is a rather strange concept to us. But in the ancient Hebrew culture you knew what the “portion” of th

Good morning. David writing in Psalm 43:5 asks, "Why, my soul, are you downcast? Why so disturbed within me?" He then gives us good advice, "Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior
