Scripture Union Daily Guide 25th February 2021 Devotional Today – Superior Message From God’s Son

You are reading Today’s Scripture Union Daily Guide for Thursday 25th February 2021. May you be blessed as you read on.

TOPIC: SUPERIOR MESSAGE FROM GOD’S SON

OPENING PRAYER: Grant me grace dear Lord to apply what you will teach me today as I read this passage.

KEY VERSE: Hebrew 1:1-14
1In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe. 3The Son is the radiance of God,s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. 4So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs. 5For to which of the angels did God ever say, “You are my Son; today I have become your Father”? Or again, “I will be his Father, and he will be my Son”? 6And again, when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, “Let all God,s angels worship him.” 7In speaking of the angels he says, “He makes his angels spirits, and his servants flames of fire.” 8But about the Son he says, “Your throne, O God, will last for ever and ever; a scepter of justice will be the scepter of your kingdom. 9You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.” 10He also says, “In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. 11They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. 12You will roll them up like a robe; like a garment they will be changed. But you remain the same, and your years will never end.” 13To which of the angels did God ever say, “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet”? 14Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

Question(s) for Reflection:
• What does the passage teach about God the Father, God the Son or God the Holy Spirit?
• What is God revealing to me in this passage?

MESSAGE: SCRIPTURE UNION DAILY GUIDE 25TH FEBRUARY 2021 DEVOTIONAL

God spoke in various ways as recorded in the Old Testament. All the prophets were God’s ambassadors to His people and the world. Ambassadors represent the King and relay his message to the people. They, however, must step aside when the King’s son is present. The writer here demonstrated the superiority of the Son’s revelation in seven ways.

Find these in vs.2-3 and compare the following seven passages: Romans 8:17; Colossians 1:16; 1:15; 1:17; 3:1; John 1:14 and Titus 2:14. Significant messages in the Old Testament were sent to the prophets and the people through angels. The Jews revered them as God’s special messengers. The writer here cited seven Old Testament quotations to clearly show that even these special messengers are inferior to Christ.

Take for example, worship. Angels refuse to be worshipped but the Lord Jesus, being God, received worship and is to be worshipped (Revelations 22:8-9; compare Matthew 14:33). Note the truths revealed in these quotations. How do they convince you of Christ’s supremacy? Reflect on them and join with others to worship Him.

Practice/Word Application:
• For further studies: Note the reaction of some Jews to the visitation of angels in Judges 13; Daniel 10; Revelation 22:8-9.

• Any new insight or reinforcement of what you already know?

HYMN: REPENT! ’TIS THE VOICE OF JESUS
1. Repent! ’tis the voice of Jesus
Now sounding in your ear;
The message of God rings loud and clear,
Now seek Him, for He is near.

Refrain
Repent! and be ye saved,
Repent! and be ye saved,
Repent! and be ye saved,
Repent! and be ye saved.

2. Repent! while the Lord invites you;
Before the Savior fall;
The wages of sin is death to all
Who heed not the Gospel call.

3. Repent! while the Holy Spirit
Is striving with your soul;
The burden of sin on Jesus roll,
Surrender to His control.

4. Repent! for the days are flying;
The final hour draws nigh;
No pleasure have I, saith God on high,
In seeing the wicked die.

5. Repent! for He made atonement;
He took the sinner’s place;
O turn to the Lord, and seek His face,
And trust in His saving grace.

Closing Prayer:
• Thank you, God, for speaking to us in your Son, Jesus Christ.
• Pray for the educational needs of the children of missionaries
Offer a prayer of faith in line with James 4:7
7. Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

Bible Reading: Ex. 21-22; 2 Thess. 1
