Jesus is better. Even when I don’t have it all figured out or understand it all. Even when the more I study, the more clear and less clear it all simultaneously gets. Still I can say without a doubt, JESUS IS BETTER!
When Ruth decided to go with Naomi back to Bethlehem, Ruth, a Moabite, didn’t have all the answers, but she believed Naomi’s God was better. When Rahab, the prostitute from Jericho, hid the spies and tied the scarlet cord outside her window, she didn’t understand it all, but she believed the God of Israel was better. When Peter remained despite Jesus saying hard truths that drove many away, he didn’t understand how it would all go down, but he believed Jesus was better.
Jesus is better. He is alive and sitting at the right hand of God the Father. With all power and authority until at just the right time; the ordained time, He will come again.
Hebrews opens with the assertion and truth that God speaks. Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke through the prophets. But in these last days, He speaks through His Son. Jesus didn’t just bring a message…He IS the message. Jesus wasn’t just another prophet and spokesperson…He is the radiance of the Glory of God; He is the exact imprint of the nature and character of God. He is God. Jesus is better.
Jesus came to earth and made purification for our sins. By one offering, He made righteous all who believe. And then He sat down. His offering was perfect and complete to make us perfect and complete in Him.
Do you believe Jesus is better? You don’t have to have it all figured out. None of us will on this side of heaven. Ask God to reveal Himself to you through Jesus; through His word. He may be sitting, but He is still powerful; He is still watching and still working and still rooting for you.
