“Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by His Son, whom He appointed the heir of all things, through whom also He created the world. He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of His nature, and He upholds the universe by the word of His power. After making purification for sins, He sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on High, having become much superior to angels as the name He has inherited is more excellent than theirs.”
When I think of radiance,
I see the most glorious sunrise imaginable, wrapped up in power that is unknown to mankind.
I think glory…
And I see the sun and a thousand stars whose only explanation of existing is through the word of God.
An unending display of God’s beautiful creation.
As for power…
I see and indescribable force strong enough to shake the very foundations of the world.
Combine them all, and you get God; Creator of the most glorious sunrises, Author of the universe and Giver of life. He is indescribable power strong enough to shake the world He created at a word from His mouth, yet gracious enough to allow us to live…
And live abundantly.
