Connecting with Ultimate Majesty

Some are taking issue with the New Testament record. "How can you prove that Jesus actually said that?" they challenge. Perhaps they are taking issue because they have come across the unforgettable words of Jesus in John's Gospel:

As for the person who hears my words but does not keep them, I do not judge him. For I did not come to judge the world, but to save it. There is a judge for the one who rejects me and does not accept my words; that very word which I spoke will condemn him at the last day (John 12:47-48).

God is a living God and Jesus Christ, with all power and all authority, is at the control panel, guiding and sustaining all things in the universe. That concept is fundamental to the Christian faith. It is necessary that we really and fully comprehend that our God is indeed the Majesty in the heavens.

We can get this assurance from Hebrews, read in the context of the total inspired record. And as we are assured of this, we will have discovered a fundamental means of retaining our sanity in a troubled world and in a selfish society.

Verse

The point of what we are saying is this: We do have such a high priest, who sat down at the right hand of the throne of the Majesty in heaven, . . . Hebrews 8:1

Thought

Though living in the ordinary, through Christ we may connect with ultimate Majesty. Connected with love, truth and eternal reality, we can live in this world which is convulsed by terror, evil and fear. How else can one live?

Prayer

Upon Your Word I rest, Lord. And in Your advocacy I trust. I worship You.
