• The Final Word Devotional

    Hebrews 1:1–2

    In the church today, we observe many who claim to have received revelation directly from God. Consider the emphasis the author of Hebrews places upon the superiority of Christ and His revelation to us. Praise God that He has revealed His truth to us completely and finally through Jesus Christ, the Creator and Sustainer of the world. View Resource

  • Jesus the Prophet Devotional

    Hebrews 1:1–2

    Jesus accomplished the work of a prophet through His earthly teaching ministry and by speaking through the Apostles. Now that the Apostolic era has ended, new revelation from God has ceased, but by His Spirit, Jesus is illuminating the meaning of the Apostolic Word—the Scriptures—to us. We must have the help of the Spirit of Christ to understand Scripture, so we must ask Him to bless all of our studies of His Word. View Resource

  • Progressive Revelation Devotional

    Hebrews 1:1–2

    Progressive revelation means that we who live in the new covenant era are blessed to know more about God’s plan and its outworking than those who lived under the old covenant. That does not mean, however, that we ignore the old covenant revelation, for Scripture cannot be broken (John 10:35). We need the Old Testament as much as we need the New Testament to know our Creator and how to love and obey Him. View Resource

  • God’s Final Revelation Devotional

    Hebrews 1:1–4

    Many people today claim to be Apostles. However, to be an Apostle, one must be an eyewitness of Jesus’ resurrection or be confirmed as an Apostle by other resurrection eyewitnesses (Acts 1:12–26; Gal. 1:18–2:10). This is impossible in our era, so there are no living Apostles giving us special revelation. We must be content with what we have—the Apostolic and prophetic words of Scripture. To look beyond these for a word from God is to look in vain. View Resource

  • Our Sovereign Sustainer Devotional

    Hebrews 1:1-4

    We can lose control over the things that we govern. Our property can be confiscated for just or unjust reasons. Our children can rebel and never return to the family. Yet this is not so with our Creator. Nothing takes place except that which He has ordained will take place. That does not mean every event receives His blessing, but it does mean that it would be foolish to believe anything we or any other person can do will derail His accomplishment of His purposes.

  • The Threefold Office of Christ Devotional

    Hebrews 1:1–4

    Christ Jesus is worthy of our highest allegiance because of all that He does for us. As our Prophet, He guides us in the paths of righteousness through His Word. As our Priest, He guarantees the salvation of those who trust Him through His atonement and intercession. As our King, He leads us to final victory over sin, Satan, and death. Let us worship our Lord and Savior, for He has provided all that we will ever need. View Resource

  • The Supremacy of Christ Devotional

    Hebrews 1

    Take some time to look through Hebrews today. Pray that God would demonstrate the glory and supremacy of Jesus Christ through His Word. As you consider the message of Hebrews, pray that every aspect of your life would be in conformity with Christ, the Founder and Perfecter of your faith. View Resource

  • Christ the Glory of God Devotional

    Hebrews 1:3

    Today, we see something of God’s glory by faith as we trust in Jesus. One day we will see this glory in its fullest sense, insofar as we are able as creatures to see His glory, for on that day we will view Christ by sight and not merely by faith. But that does not mean we get no true glimpse of God’s glory now as we look to Christ. And as we grow in our knowledge of Christ, we will also grow in our longing to see the fullness of the divine glory. View Resource

  • God’s Powerful Sustaining Word Devotional

    Hebrews 1:3

    Understanding the importance of God’s sustaining providence should make us profoundly grateful for all things. Every moment we are alive to experience the joys and blessings He brings our way is a gift of His grace. Therefore, we should know not to take any moment for granted. We have a theological reason to be thankful for our lives, and we should never be practical deists who live as if our tomorrows are guaranteed. View Resource

  • The Name Above All Names Devotional

    Hebrews 1:3–4

    Jesus Christ is Prophet, Priest, and King. He has accomplished His sacrificial work of purification and continues to sustain the universe while seated at the right hand of the Majesty on high. His ministry is superior to all others, and His name is above all names. Praise God for creating, sustaining, and securing life by His own power. View Resource

  • Superior to Angels Devotional

    Hebrews 1:5–6

    Read through the second Psalm and consider the manifold ways the Psalmist describes the triumph and kingdom of the Messiah. The closing line of Psalm 2 states, “Blessed are all who take refuge in him.” Remember always that He is the only begotten Son of God in whom there is life everlasting for all who believe in Him. View Resource

  • He Shall Reign Forever Devotional

    Hebrews 1:7–9

    Christians are called “heirs of the kingdom” (James 2:5). We have received the King’s pardon on account of a sacrifice, but it is not just any sacrifice — the King of glory sacrificed Himself for our eternal righteousness, and He shall reign forever. Indeed, the King of glory, our King, is worthy of all glory, honor, and praise. View Resource

  • The Lord of Creation Devotional

    Hebrews 1:10–12

    In chapter 12, the author of Hebrews tells us that Jesus Christ is the Founder and Perfecter of our faith. As you reflect on today’s passage of Scripture, keep in mind that our salvation is secured by One who is eternal, immutable, and divine. Unlike the heavens and earth which shall pass away, the salvation of God’s people is certain. View Resource

  • Servants of the Saints Devotional

    Hebrews 1:13­–14

    God’s grace works not only in our salvation, but also in the angels He sends to minister to us. Usually, we are not sure where and how the angels are working, but the close calls and unexpected provisions we experience may just be evidence of their activity. Ask the Lord to remind you that His angels are constantly working on your behalf. View Resource

  • Spirits Who Minister Devotional

    Hebrews 1:13-14

    There are many other ways that angels minister to the people of God, but the key point is that our Lord uses these beings for our benefit. His love is so great that He sends powerful creatures to minister to us in ways that we are not even aware of at times. If you are doubting God’s love this day, know that His use of angels in your behalf shows His great affection for you if you are in Christ. View Resource
