Heir to All Creation
"God . . . hath . . . spoken unto us by his Son, whom he hath appointed heir of all things." (Hebrews 1:1–2)
In this life, we are experiencing only unfinished segments of God’s great eternal plan. Certainly we are not able to comprehend fully the glory that will be ours in that future day when leaning on the arm of our heavenly Bridegroom we are led into the presence of the Father in heaven with exceeding joy!
The writer to the Hebrews has tried to help us in the proper exercise of our faith, with the amazing statement that our Lord Jesus Christ is the heir of all things in God’s far-flung creation. All things created have been ordered and laid out so they become the garment of deity and the universal living expression of Himself to this world!
What does “heir of all things” really mean? It includes angels, seraphim, cherubim, ransomed men and women of all ages, matter, mind, law, spirit, value, meaning. It includes life and events on varied levels of being -- and God’s great interest embraces them all!
Surely God has left nothing to chance in His creative scheme -- whether it be the tiniest blade of grass or the mightiest galaxy in the distant heavens above!
Lord of the Harvest, there are still people in this world who have never heard the name of Jesus. Nor, therefore, have they heard that He will be the rightful “heir of all things.” I pray that Your Spirit will hasten the sending of the gospel to the remaining unreached peoples of the world.
