    </div><div>_It is advisable that you prayerfully and meditatively read the text first_</div><div>
    </div><div>*ALL HAIL THE MARVELLOUS CREATOR*</div><div>*TEXT:* HEBREWS 1:1-10</div><div>
    </div><div>*📖 READING*</div><div> *HEBREWS 1:1-10*</div><div>
    </div><div>[1]God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spake in time past unto the fathers by the prophets,</div><div>
    </div><div>[2]Hath in these last days spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds;</div><div>
    </div><div>[3]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;</div><div>
    </div><div>[4]Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.</div><div>
    </div><div>[5]For unto which of the angels said he at any time, Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee? And again, I will be to him a Father, and he shall be to me a Son?</div><div>
    </div><div>[6]And again, when he bringeth in the first begotten into the world, he saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.</div><div>
    </div><div>[7]And of the angels he saith, Who maketh his angels spirits, and his ministers a flame of fire.</div><div>
    </div><div>[8]But unto the Son he saith, Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of thy kingdom.</div><div>
    </div><div>[9]Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity; therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.</div><div>
    </div><div>[10]And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands:</div><div>
    </div><div>🔑📖KEY VERSE: _*”And, Thou, Lord, in the beginning hast laid the foundation of the earth; and the heavens are the works of thine hands” (HEBREWS 1:10).*_</div><div>
    </div><div>In the year 2020, astronomers using the _Hubble_ space telescope discovered a new star and caused a lot of excitement in scientific circles. According to them, this star, which they named “Icarus”, is said to be located at 13.4 billion light-years from the earth. So, the distance of “Icarus” from the earth is 10.915 trillion kilometres, multiplied by 13.4 billion! Remember, that is not yet up to heaven. But the angels can come from heaven to earth in a matter of seconds! (Daniel 10:12, 13). Such is the power of God.</div><div>
    </div><div>Our text reveals the majesty of God and the glorious image inherent in His Son “whom he hath appointed heir of all things, by whom also he made the worlds”. Christ is portrayed as the “brightness of his glory, and the express image of his person”. He is our Propitiator who had by Himself purged our sins, [and] sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high”. Christ’s throne is forever and a sceptre of righteousness is the sceptre of His kingdom. He laid the foundation of the earth in the beginning, and will fold them up eventually while He remains ever the same.</div><div>
    </div><div>The wonders of God’s creations are a great beauty to behold. He made the angels, and all men, the rising and setting sun, the golden moonlight, the beautiful roses, the waterfalls, the vast oceans, the gentle breeze we enjoy as we relax, the rain showers that soften the ground and make it bring forth and bud, the animal kingdom, the vast vegetation, the star filled night sky, etc. These are just a part of what our wonderful Creator has made. He gave us eyes to see them and lips that we might tell how great the Almighty, who has done all things well, is.</div><div>
    </div><div>Therefore, believers need to adore God to whom they owe their existence. An attitude of gratitude is always pleasing to Him as it makes us praise Him. There is no sweeter song in His ear than the song of one who blesses Him. If you can only praise God today, you will experience marvellous things that will utterly astonish you.</div><div>
    </div><div>✍🏽THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: _*Praising God is a mark of gratitude.*_</div><div>
    </div><div>THE BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:*2 PETER 1-3*</div><div>
    </div><div> *MEDITATION*</div><div>
    </div><div>*The most superior Christ*</div><div>
    </div><div>1. The fact He made all the worlds and owns all the worlds including you and me is emphasised in v1. The devil is not the owner of the world but a pretender🤷‍♂️</div><div>
    </div><div>*Question*</div><div>What are the rights of Christ over your life and your responsibility to Him as the Owner of the world and all human beings?</div><div>2. Jesus is the brightness of God’s glory. A glory is known by its brightness. If the brightness is gone, the glory loses its beauty and honour, v2.</div><div>
    </div><div>*Question*</div><div>What does it mean for Christ to be the brightness of God’s glory?🤔</div><div>3. He is the express or exact image of God? It means there is no essential difference between God and Jesus, v3. How does this mean to you?</div><div>4. Jesus is the One upholding all things by His power. He is upholding the world from moral and natural collapse, He upholds the life of every person in the world from death, He upholds every Christian to be victorious all the time, He upholds His world so that no power can just wake up and destroy it against His will, etc.</div><div>5. There are several reasons in vv4-10 why Jesus is incomparably superior to all the angels including the mighty angels and fallen angels. What are those reasons?</div><div>6. As a result of His superiority and ownership of all created beings, holy worship, unquestionable obedience and submission are our responsibilities towards Him.</div><div>
    </div><div>*Question*</div><div>What are the other consequences of Christ’s ownership and authority over all creations?</div><div>
    </div><div>*Prayer points*</div><div>Give praises and worship to Jesus Christ for Who He is🙏</div><div>Surrender all to Christ and promise Him total Obedience and submission to His word and will🙏</div><div>Ask Him to always uphold you from falling from the height God has put you🙏</div><div>Pray for more revelation of Christ to His children🙏</div><div>
    </div><div>*HYMN* To God Be The Glory</div>
