This is why it’s necessary for us to pay more attention to what we have heard, or else we may drift away from it. If the message that was spoken by angels was reliable, and every offense and act of disobedience received an appropriate consequence, how will we escape if we ignore such a great salvation? It was first announced through the Lord, and then it was confirmed by those who heard him. God also vouched for their message with signs, amazing things, various miracles, and gifts from the Holy Spirit, which were handed out the way he wanted. God didn’t put the world that is coming (the world we are talking about) under the angels’ control. Instead, someone declared somewhere, What is humanity that you think about them? Or what are the human beings that you care about them? For a while you made them lower than angels. You crowned the human beings with glory and honor. You put everything under their control. When he puts everything under their control, he doesn’t leave anything out of control. But right now, we don’t see everything under their control yet. However, we do see the one who was made lower in order than the angels for a little while—it’s Jesus! He’s the one who is now crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of his death. He suffered death so that he could taste death for everyone through God’s grace. (Hebrews 2:1-9, CEB)
We need to pay attention to the message we have heard or we may drift away. We need to remember the message we first received, not what others tell us the message is or what the world tells us the message is, or what organized religion tells us what the message is.
Humanity is just a little lower than the angels and we have control over everything, and we need to remember the love with which we were given control or we will push to have our own way and not let those who do not fit our understanding be a part of things.
When we think the rules are all that we drift away from the original intent, love.
We need to love everything and everyone. That is what God created us for.
Love. Love Out Loud!
Loving People. Loving God.
