Read and Digest Today’s Anglican Daily Fountain Devotional for November 4, 2023 written to inspire and bless you!
TOPIC: JESUS CHRIST:THE CAPTAIN OF OUR SALVATION
TEXT: Hebrews 2-3:6(KJV)
2:1 Therefore we ought to give the more earnest heed to the things which we have heard, lest at any time we should let them slip.
2:2 For if the word spoken by angels was stedfast, and every transgression and disobedience received a just recompence of reward;
2:3 How shall we escape, if we neglect so great salvation; which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed unto us by them that heard him;
2:4 God also bearing them witness, both with signs and wonders, and with divers miracles, and gifts of the Holy Ghost, according to his own will?
2:5 For unto the angels hath he not put in subjection the world to come, whereof we speak.
2:6 But one in a certain place testified, saying, What is man, that thou art mindful of him? or the son of man that thou visitest him?
2:7 Thou madest him a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst him with glory and honour, and didst set him over the works of thy hands:
2:8 Thou hast put all things in subjection under his feet. For in that he put all in subjection under him, he left nothing that is not put under him. But now we see not yet all things put under him.
2:9 But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour; that he by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
2:10 For it became him, for whom are all things, and by whom are all things, in bringing many sons unto glory, to make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings.
2:11 For both he that sanctifieth and they who are sanctified are all of one: for which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren,
2:12 Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, in the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee.
2:13 And again, I will put my trust in him. And again, Behold I and the children which God hath given me.
2:14 Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;
2:15 And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage.
2:16 For verily he took not on him the nature of angels; but he took on him the seed of Abraham.
2:17 Wherefore in all things it behoved him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people.
2:18 For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.
3:1 Wherefore, holy brethren, partakers of the heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our profession, Christ Jesus;
3:2 Who was faithful to him that appointed him, as also Moses was faithful in all his house.
3:3 For this man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as he who hath builded the house hath more honour than the house.
3:4 For every house is builded by some man; but he that built all things is God.
3:5 And Moses verily was faithful in all his house, as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken after;
3:6 But Christ as a son over his own house; whose house are we, if we hold fast the confidence and the rejoicing of the hope firm unto the end.
Anglican Daily Fountain 14th November 2023 STUDY:
A captain is the one among a group who leads others to achieve a goal; he gives directions and instructions to his subjects. The goal here is eternal life that can only be obtained through Christ, the Captain of our salvation who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, and was crowned with glory and honour.
He then obtained a new name higher than any other name. In our passage today, we see Christ as the captain over God’s house and the Heir of God’s salvation (v.10). He is the faithful High Priest(v.17), the Son of God and an effulgence of His glory and honour, that he by the grace of God should taste death for mankind. God put everything under His control and made Him to suffer death on the cross so that He will bring many sons unto glory. Christ came for man’s total redemption (v 14).
Beloved, Jesus Christ saved you with the assurance of leading you into glory (Acts 4:12; John 1:12). You are a candidate of God’s eternal kingdom, therefore, rejoice that you have a loving and caring Captain of your soul, leading you to glory. He gives all things to all people: Forgiveness to penitent sinners; health to the sick; comfort to the disheartened; strength to the weak; refuge to the insecure; guidance to the confused; rest to the weary and children to the barren. Relax confidently in His saving arms and you will be happy that you did so.
PRAYER: Dear Lord, I hand over the affairs of my life to Christ, the captain of my salvation for safety in Jesus’ name. Amen.
