“God, who at various times and in different ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets, has in these last days spoken to us by His Son, whom He has appointed heir of all things, through whom also He made the worlds” (Hebrews 1:1-2).
With this dramatic opening, the writer of the Hebrew letter begins one of the most powerful pieces of writing in all of scripture—powerful not because of the writing but because of the message.
These verses begin with a dramatic declaration of the Ultimate Power—this is, of course, God—and they concisely explain the transition of that power to the designated Heir and they point out the superiority of that Power to any other being.
May this message remain emblazoned upon our hearts as we walk through the maze of life, chart our spiritual course toward heaven, and establish our priorities. God, as our superior, and His Son, as the One Who received total power, have the right to direct our lives. Our job is to submit to their power.
