Hebrews 2v9 Suffered
But we do see Jesus, who was made lower than the angels for a little while, now crowned with glory and honour because he suffered death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone.
When you look out at the world and universe around us there are, I think, to opposite trains of thought that might go through your mind. The first is how insignificant we must be in the vastness of the universe. The second is how special we must be to have a place in the vast nothingness of the universe.
At the start of Douglas Adams’ “Hitch-Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy” it begins with the earth being destroyed to make way for an intergalactic bypass - and no-one on earth knew about about. It is perhaps Adams’ way of highlighting just how insignificant we are compared to the vastness of the universe.
BUT if the story we began with is indeed true - that Jesus is the Firstborn - then its far more likely that we are special. While the universe might be vast, Jesus came as a baby to us. Of course if you simply took the story of Mary and Jospeh having a child out of wedlock and removed God form it, then there is no story here. Just another couple having a child in a backwater town in the middle of no-where. BUT Jesus didn’t come to just be a baby, to be another child among millions, he came to show us the grace of God that echos throughout eternity and clears the rubbish out of the way so that we can again be with God.
