Day 2 – Jesus our Everything

Question of the Day: I challenge everyone, even if it’s just one word or phrase, to describe how you see Jesus after reading God’s description of Him.

For God never said to any angel what he said to Jesus:

“You are my Son.
    Today I have become your Father.[a]

God also said,

“I will be his Father,
    and he will be my Son.”[b]

And when he brought his supreme[c] Son into the world, God said,[d]

“Let all of God’s angels worship him.”[e]

Regarding the angels, he says,

“He sends his angels like the winds,
    his servants like flames of fire.”[f]

But to the Son he says,

“Your throne, O God, endures forever and ever.
    You rule with a scepter of justice.
You love justice and hate evil.
    Therefore, O God, your God has anointed you,
    pouring out the oil of joy on you more than on anyone else.”[g]

10 He also says to the Son,

“In the beginning, Lord, you laid the foundation of the earth
    and made the heavens with your hands.
11 They will perish, but you remain forever.
    They will wear out like old clothing.
12 You will fold them up like a cloak
    and discard them like old clothing.
But you are always the same;
    you will live forever.”[h]

13 And God never said to any of the angels,

“Sit in the place of honor at my right hand
    until I humble your enemies,
    making them a footstool under your feet.”[i]

14 Therefore, angels are only servants—spirits sent to care for people who will inherit salvation.

Jesus is the Alpha and Omega. He is the same yesterday, today and forever, and through him we are all blessed. He is all power and authority. Earthly kingdoms will come to an end, but Christ’s is an everlasting kingdom.
I loved the words oil of joy. I went on a hunt and found this reading:
It’s here, in a quiet meeting between Father and child, where exhaled breath from a weary soul seeks God’s grace and presence, and where surrender and obedience are joyfully laid bare.
This may not refer to what those words actually meant in the verse context, but it delights my soul and fills me with joy to know my Heavenly Father reigns supreme.

Gods love will rein forever. He will judge our wrong doings but will forgive us of our sins. God blesses our lives by carrying us through the storm of life. When we carry out his will he will always be there to protect and provide for us.
