August 26, 2018: Firstborn!

Text: Romans 8:29

The term firstborn is a fascinating word study, particularly in the NT. Jesus is the firstborn of creation, of the dead, and of the new order, which he purchased with His own blood. Jesus being the firstborn of many brothers is the powerful result of God's unswerving commitment to conform us to the image of Jesus Christ. It yields strong Christian comfort and encouragement and it's something I don't hear many talking about. We definitely need to understand it and receive it now, during this challenging time for us all.
