AWAKE Week: Wednesday

IMG_4816On Wednesday Mr. Webster talked about the Son of God. He related to a story that Hans Christian Andersen wrote. In the story the evil king continues to try to conquer God. The king continues to fail miserably but tries again. Mr. Webster used four different passages to relate God to the Son: In John 1:12 – the word becomes flesh. Verse 15 in Colossians 1 says “Through him and for him – all things were created.” Hebrews 1:1-4, the Son of God is the heir of all things. Verse 3-4 says “The Son is the radiance of God’s glory and the exact representation of his being, sustaining all things by his powerful word. After he had provided purification for sins, he sat down at the right hand of the Majesty in heaven. So he became as much superior to the angels as the name he has inherited is superior to theirs.”  The Son came to serve and give his life as a ransom for many, Mark 10:35-45. Mr. Webster talked about how we have no right to act superior. James and John ask for the right and left seats. Jesus replied and said that they do not know what they are saying. Mr. Webster brings the story at the beginning into play once again. Although Jesus suffered, he was exulted and the king was embarrassed.
