What we need for Mondays

“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. After making purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high,” – Hebrews 1:3

Where do you start the week? Is it with the checklist of tasks needing to be done (where I started)? Is it with time for quiet reflection savoring the last moments of weekend? Is it by hitting the snooze button more than once? Maybe a better place for all of us to start is this truth of who Jesus is.

God himself. The keeper of the universe. The earth spins on its axis, the planets orbit the sun and each star flickers only because Jesus keep them in place with his very word. Once he was the sacrifice to cover and deal with our sin he sat on the throne of heaven on his way to having all nations as his footstool ushering in his eternal reign over all things.

Who has power that could top this? No one and nothing. Not my enemies, colleagues, or partners. Not my family or friends. Not my boss. Not my schedule. Not my bank statement. Not my smartphone.

Christ above all. Reigning and saving you. It is better than bulletproof coffee. It is eternity.

Look up today. Know this Jesus and rejoice that the One who tells the sun to shine knows you and loves you.
