Christ the Heir

The writer to the Hebrews begins the letter by declaring that the Son of God is “heir of all things.”  This leaves nothing out.

No doubt the writer was mindful of Psalm 2 and especially verse 8.  The Son was to inherit the nations and the earth upon which they dwelt.

Of course, the very reason Jesus had died and risen again is so that He might be Lord of the dead and the living (Romans 14:7-9).  He never intended to leave anything out.

For this reason we who live today should cease living for ourselves and instead live for Him who died and rose again on our behalf (2 Corinthians 5:14-15).  He is the heir and we are the prize of His inheritance (Matthew 13:44).

The purpose of this blog is to praise Jesus Christ in terms familiar to those who read the Bible, and to help others become more familiar with the Bible. For those unfamiliar with the Bible, look to the blog A Nonchurchgoer’s Guide to Jesus and His Kingdom .
