Christ: Our Final Reward

Therefore let us go to him outside the camp and bear the reproach he endured. For here we have no lasting city, but we seek the city that is to come.”
–Hebrews 13:13-14

He is God’s final revelation.
He is the heir of all things.
He is the creator of the world.
He is the radiance of God’s glory.
He is the exact imprint of God’s nature.
He upholds the universe by the Word of His power.
He made purification for sins.
He sits on the right hand of the Majesty.
He is God enthroned forever with the scepter of uprightness.
He is worshiped by angels.
His rule will have no end.
His joy is above all other things in the universe.
He took on human flesh.
He was crowned with glory and honor because of his suffering.
He was the founder of our salvation.
He was made perfect in all his obedience by his suffering.
He destroyed the one who has power of death, the Devil.
He delivered us from the bondage of fear.
He is a merciful and faithful High Priest.
He made propitiation for sins.
He is sympathetic because of his own trials.
He never sinned.
He offered up loud cries and tears with reverent fear and God heard him.
He became the source of eternal salvation.
He holds his priesthood by virtue of an indestructible life.
He appears in the presence of God on our behalf.
He will come a second time to save those who are eagerly waiting for Him.
He is the same yesterday, today and forever.
