6 But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him? 7 You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor 8 and put everything under their feet.” In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them. 9 But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:6 – 9)
Unfortunately, many people around the world who appreciate the beauty of creation don’t see the Creator. Hebrews 2:9 includes 5 powerful words: “But we do see Jesus”. The story of the Creator humbling Himself to save his creation is good news. Because of this act of sacrifice, we can find our identity in Christ.
Today, be acutely aware of the wonder of God’s creation all around you. Take some time to smell the proverbial roses.
Please prayerfully reflect on the Bible passages above.
Something to think about:
When do you see Jesus most powerfully through creation?
