The responsibility to reign and rule
is not that of angels,
it is that of humankind.
Today's Scripture: Hebrews 2:5-8
In the above verses, we learn something quite profound in the most clear terms. The Bible says,
It was not to angels that God subjected the [inhabited] world of the future [when Christ reigns], about which we are speaking.
But one has [solemnly] testified somewhere [in Scripture], saying,“What is man, that You are mindful of him,Or the son of man, that You graciously care for him?
You have made him for a little while lower [in status] than the angels;You have crowned him with glory and honor, And set him over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things in subjection under his feet[confirming his supremacy].”Now in putting all things in subjection to man, He left nothing outside his control. But at present we do not yet see all things subjected to him.HEBREWS 2:5-8 AMP
What we see here is that we have been given the throne and the capacity to rule. Also, from scriptures, we understand that as long as Christ reigns, and he abides in us, and we in him, we also reign, because we are seated with Him in heavenly places.
God chose you and me to inhabit the world and to dominate it. In other news, the earth is subject to you and me by divine ordination. Do you believe and accept that? It’s beautiful. So, go on today, with full assurance that you have been made to reign. That has been the plan from creation, and the death of Christ has sealed that plan too. Hallelujah!
Prayer Point: Father, help me to fully understand my place in Christ, and show me how to live in the reality of your divine plan for my life in Jesus name. Amen.
