So Much Better
Hebrews 1:4-6 (KJB) Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they. 5 For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son? 6 And ,, when he bringeth in the firstbegotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.
I know that you have all met someone who is so caught up in themselves and walks with their nose stuck up in the air. Have you ever thought that if it began to pour rain, this particular person might drown in such a downpour, having his or her nose so stuck up in the air?
The truth is that not one person is created better than any other person. Each of us, including all humanity, was uniquely formed equally by God and with each for a particular purpose in this world. Yes, God created you and sent you to this world for a specific reason. Finding out the will of God for your life does not come to those who are stuck on their agenda, or to those who care nothing about acknowledging God’s plan. Nor will it come to those who choose to ignore God and to discount direction from Him.
The position of Christ, as found in this verse, Hebrews 1:4-6, above is that He is above all, including humanity, creatures, and angels. Jesus Christ is the first begotten of many. He is situated above all things since the beginning of time, and He will never shift away from this heralded spiritual position. He has expectations for all humbled souls of humanity to join Him in serving and savoring things of God.
Instead of looking down on or away from matters of God, we must recognize the high placement of God and, in retrospect, to our humble beginning and His unique formation of angels. God is worthy of adoration and praise, and we should worship Him rather than place any importance upon ourselves, angels, or others in this world. Jesus Christ is the first begotten and made so much better than any other human or angel, and we are to adore and worship Him alone.
