Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high; (Hebrews 1:3 NKJV)

HEBREWS 1 IN ITS ENTIRETY.

Thought of the Week: How odd is the phrase “purged our sins” when considering the attributes and actions of Christ would it seem if we were not so used to the idea! He who possesses and perfectly reveals the nature of God the Father, who created this world by his mere command, and wh even now sits ruling over the universe at his Father’s side, “by Himself purged our sins.” He who was higher than the heavens stooped to bear the sins of His people to the cruel cross of Calvary, there to purge them all away in the flow of His precious blood.

Prayer: O risen Savior, Who once bore the wrath of God in my place on Calvary’s tree, You are exalted far above all and yet are lowly of heart and full of compassion. You combine in one Person perfect humanity and perfect divinity. In You, love and truth unite in perfect harmony; in you, majesty and humility embrace and hold sweet communion. May we see in you all of this glory, and may the sight of it transform us and excite in us a spirit of true worship and repentance. In Your holy name, amen.
