“The Son radiates God’s own glory and expresses the very character of God, and he sustains everything by the mighty power of his command. When he had cleansed us from our sins, he sat down in the place of honor at the right hand of the majestic God in heaven.” - Hebrews 1:3 New Living Translation
Jesus of Nazareth, was God in bodily form. The Father, Son & Holy Spirit are one in the same, yet with different functions. “Each member of the Trinity has a specific role. Although each is fully God, the roles within the Trinity are distinct for each member. The general teaching on the subject is that the Father is the head of Deity; the Son is the one who reveals Deity, while the Holy Spirit carries out the work of Deity.” Jesus acted in full cooperation and acceptance of the Father’s will when he came and in the fullness of time taught the Father’s message of forgiveness. As the fulfillment of that will he allowed himself to be, as it were, a lamb led to the slaughter. Without the shedding of blood there can be no forgiveness, for that is the set up God arranged. Blood was required to cleanse one’s sins.
As ambassadors of Christ we too are to reveal the Father to those around us, just like Christ. The Spirit enables us to perform those things ordained by God. It is our own feelings of inadequacy and unworthiness that keep us from doing all we are capable of in Jesus name.
Jesus Christ died a brutal death for our benefit, then sat down at God’s right hand; the place of honor. He sat down because his work was done. His sacrifice was done once for all time. Because of what Christ did further sacrifices were unnecessary. This is wonderful news, yet so many refuse to even consider the truth of the matter. Free will gives them the right to choose to refuse. Since God desires willing followers this is the way it must be. Pray for those who have yet to receive forgiveness and live your life as a reflection of Christ’s life. Until next time, walk with the King and be a blessing!
