The Supremacy of Christ in a Hectic & Hostile World

How can you experience the supremacy of Christ as you live in the reality of a hectic and hostile world? This was the focus of Hebrews 1:1-4 for a group of Jewish Christians two thousand years ago, and it should be the focus for a group of Christ-followers who live in the Seattle metroplex in 2010.  This week, pray and process through the six visions of the supremacy of Christ presented in 1:1-4:

“God, after He spoke long ago to the fathers in the prophets in many portions and in many ways, in these last days has spoken to us in His Son, whom He appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the world. And He is the radiance of His glory and the exact representation of His nature, and upholds all things by the word of His power When He had made purification of sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become as much better than the angels, as He has inherited a more excellent name than they.”

Jesus Christ is…

  1. The Promised One. God is the God who fulfills His promises
  2. The Word. God is the God who speaks life and light into darkness and brokenness
  3. The Creator. God is the God who creates and re-creates our lives and our world
  4. The Divine One. God is the God who invites to see the treasure of His glory
  5. The Sustainer. God is the God who offers us His great sustaining grace
  6. The Crucified & Risen Lord. God is the God who has freed us from the power of sin and offers us the very unlimited resources of heaven

This week, meditate upon these six visions of the supremacy of Christ.  Ask the Holy Spirit to show you the greatness and glory of Christ as you allow Him to shape your life and your world.  And then we will begin experiencing the supremacy of Christ in a hectic and hostile world.

For His Glory,

Pastor Jonathan
