Hebrews 2:10 – For Whom and By Whom All Things Exist

Today’s Reading: Lamentations 4:1‐5:22, Hebrews 2:1‐18, Psalm 103:1‐22, Proverbs 26:23

Context: The writer of Hebrews challenges his audience to pay close attention to the gospel and explains how Christ cared enough for us to humble himself on our behalf. 

Hebrews 2:10 – “For it was fitting that he, for whom and by whom all things exist, in bringing many sons to glory, should make the founder of their salvation perfect through suffering.”

Observations (so much can come out of this verse – I want to point out the two things that jumped out to me today):

  • For whom and by whom all things exist – wow, we could the rest of our lives meditating on this. 
  • Christ was made perfect through suffering – and works suffering in a similar way in our lives.

Apply: “Lord, I give you credit for all things – all things are for you and by you.”

How do you live a life that reflects “for whom and by whom all things exist?
