“Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. BUT we see HIM…namely Jesus.”
Hebrews is about faith, right? “Faith,” Heb. 11:1 says, “is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Faith – our faith – is evidence. It is the evidence that Jesus is real, that his work on the cross is real, that heaven is coming, that today we live and breathe and have our being because of what He is doing in and thru us. Wow! I sound like a preacher. Too much Christine Caine last night.
So, the point for today? We see Jesus…we can’t see all the rest…the part where the whole world bows down to Him – but we can see Him and in Him is where we can nail our faith. “What HE said!” …follow that, believe that, cling to that, be that, do that.
There is nothing outside of His control. Period.
My faith – given to me by His grace, is evidence. Gives a whole new meaning to being a witness, doesn’t it?
About the World?
