But there is a place where someone has testified: “What is mankind that you are mindful of them, a son of man that you care for him? You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor and put everything under their feet.” In putting everything under them, God left nothing that is not subject to them. Yet at present we do not see everything subject to them. But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honor because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.
Hebrews 2:6-10 (NIV)
Angels stood and gazed in awe as God formed man from the dust and breathed into him. They wondered as God gave man the dominion over His creation. Man was crowned with glory and honor. Satan was jealous and tempted man to sin and thereby man lost his glory. Christ Jesus came and by His humiliation and shameful death restored dominion and glory to man. This is the Gospel of glory.
Yours in Christ, pastor Festus Nsoha.
