Morning Devotional: A Reflection on the Messiah

I read these Scriptures this morning:

In His hands are the deep places of the earth; the heights of the hills are His also; 5. The sea is His, for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land. Psalm 95:4, 5

I thought about Genesis Chapter 1 and the truth that God the Father spoke and the world came into existence. As Hebrews states, “By faith we understand that the universe was created by God’s command, so that what is seen has been made from things that are not visible.” (Heb. 11:3)

Considering that this Psalm mentions God forming the dry land with His hands, my mind hopped on a train of thought that landed on the following Scriptures as I envisioned Jesus the Son of God  forming the dry land with His hands as the Father spoke:

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was with God in the beginning. 3 All things were created through Him, and apart from Him not one thing was created that has been created.” (John 1:1-3)

“In these last days, He has spoken to us by His Son. God has appointed Him heir of all things and made the universe through Him. 3. The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact expression of His nature, sustaining all things by His powerful word…”(Hebrews 1:2, 3)

Through these Scriptures I gained a clear visual of the Father speaking and the Son doing. This truth aligns with the Words Jesus spoke on earth:

“…I assure you: The Son is not able to do anything on His own, but only what He sees the Father doing. For whatever the Father does, the Son also does these things the same way.” (John 5:19)

It is beautiful to reflect on the relationship between the Father and the Son. This relationship is for the Father’s relationship with all those who become His children. We become God’s children by receiving and believing the Words He gave us through His Son (John 14:10), namely the truth that Jesus is the only acceptable sacrifice to cover the penalty of sin which is death (1 John 4:10; 1 John 2:2; John 3:15). Once we are born again and become children of God by receiving in the Son (John 1:12) we get the privilege of imitating God through the power of Holy Spirit following the Son of God’s example.

Therefore, be imitators of God, as dearly loved children. 2 And walk in love, as the Messiah also loved us and gave Himself for us, a sacrificial and fragrant offering to God. (Ephesians 5:1,2)

Additional Scriptures for reflection:

The one who has accepted His testimony has affirmed that God is true. 34. For God sent Him, and He speaks God’s words, since He gives the Spirit without measure. 35 The Father loves the Son and has given all things into His hands. 36. The one who believes has eternal life, but the one who does not believe will not see life; instead, the wrath of God remains on him. (John 1:33-36)

The Word became flesh and took up residence among us. We observed His glory, the glory as the One and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14)
