Hebrews One: The Proper Center of the Universe

Posted: June 19, 2012 in Hebrews

The writer of the book of Hebrews sets the tone for the rest of the book as the last nine or so verses of chapter one support his contention that everything is through Jesus, for Jesus, and upheld by Jesus.

In other words, it’s all about Jesus. And if it was always all about Jesus, that means it was never about us.

Never.

Not even your redemption was about you. I mean, think about that one. Paul says in Ephesians three that the Gospel exists for the purpose of showing the angels the wisdom of God. So yes, while God loves us, while Jesus died for us, while the Holy Spirit gives us new life, it’s imperative that we stop focusing on the “me” aspect of life and live with the recognition and understanding that the world resolves around Jesus- not you or me.
