After exploding with the glorious truths about Jesus being the founder, choreographer, and sustainer of the whole universe, the author will now go back and wrap up his discussion about the angels. In Hebrews 1:13-14, He writes, “And to which of the angels has he ever said, ‘Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet’? Are they not all ministering spirits sent out to serve for the sake of those who are to inherit salvation?” No one sees the created order of the universe and all the galaxies and all the molecules and atoms as clearly as the angels do. What do they do? They worship Jesus! The Old Testament proclaims this everywhere but nowhere more beautifully than in the Messianic Psalms of David. In Psalm 103:20-22 we read, “Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word! Bless the LORD, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will! Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion. Bless the LORD, O my soul!”

You see the Prophets acknowledge the superiority of Jesus! The Angels acknowledge and proclaim it! The whole earth stands as a miracle wrought at the hands of Jesus. The skies and the universe declare Jesus’ superiority! Jesus is the subject of the whole Bible. The author of Hebrews is pointing that out to his readers who are struggling over the role of religion in their lives. Is it the Law that needs emphasized? Is it the words of condemnation and judgement of the Prophets that should be proclaimed to scare the world into submission? Is it the accumulation of knowledge in the world of sowing and reaping that we should worship. Should understanding social dynamics be elevated above the worship of Jesus? The Bible is not about me and how good I am or how good I can or cannot be! The Bible is not a self-help book designed to give you good relationships and promotions on the job although there is much truth in them regarding such things. The Bible is about Jesus! Any ministry that gives prophecy, good works, or knowledge a stronger focus is not focusing on what matters most! It’s all about Jesus!

We should evaluate every book we read, every song we sing, every sermon we hear, on the basis of this truth. Is it about Jesus or is it about me or something else! Look for Jesus!
