He is the radiance of the glory of God and the exact imprint of his nature, and he upholds the universe by the word of his power. -Hebrews 1:3a
If you haven’t already, you’ll face moments when you wonder if Jesus is really worth your life. Or maybe you’ve never seen Jesus as worth much at all. Is the man named Jesus really someone to behold and someone to hold on to? Should we put our faith in him?
Our lives in the west are all about choice. We keep our options open. We demand the right to have a choice about everything. We’ll say “yes” knowing we might stumble upon a better choice with the option to choose it later. As one pastor has said, “too many of us worship at the altar of the god of options”.
So it may come as a shock the way in which Hebrews speaks about Jesus—as if Jesus is really the only one option. He is higher than angels and more faithful than money. We can find rest in him and he never changes. His discipline is love and he never changes. The salvation he made on the cross is secure in Heaven. He is the very imprint of the nature of God and he upholds the universe by the word of his power.
Simply, Jesus is the better choice. He is our only hope for eternal life, he is the the anchor of our souls, and he is the eternal savior.
