Hebrews 2: 5 It is not to angels that he has subjected the world to come, about which we are speaking. 6 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?
7 You made them a little lower than the angels; you crowned them with glory and honor
8 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. 9 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.
There s so much in this text to absorb and meditate upon. It seems to be that way with the entire “book” of Hebrews. Here we are reminded of the Psalmist David who intoned the very words above. Then the assertion is made that we have yet to realize the latent potential in the human creature, a glimpse of which is to be understood from a close observation of the person of Jesus. There might be a temptation to regard Jesus’ life as if God were beta testing His creation. Nothing could be further from the truth. Jesus came to seek and save the lost. Those who have lost their moorings in their arrogance and their pride assuming that everything revolves around them. While everything in this world has been made “subject to humankind we have managed poorly, and have failed at our principal earthly mission that is 1.) Love God, 2.) Love one another and ourselves, 3) To be witnesses to the grace of God,4.) and to remain in the unity of the Holy Spirit who is the ever present teacher guide and friend on this perilous journey.
