The Founder of Salvation

Scripture reading for October 15th:  Hebrews 2, Psalm 56, Proverbs 21

Key Scriptures: Hebrews 2:9-10 “But we see Him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God He might taste death for everyone.  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.”

The writer of Hebrews shared how God the Father sent His Son from heaven to earth, to take a position lower than the angels.  Jesus willingly suffered death, taking the penalty for our sins upon His own body and suffering that taste of death for each one who would believe on Him.  God then crowned His own Son with glory and honor, declaring Him perfect through His obedient life,  by raising Him from death.   Jesus is the founder of all salvation!

Faith Confession:  I believe in Jesus Christ, Son of God and Son of Man, who is the source of all creation and the founder of all salvation.  I am a son destined for glory through His suffering on my behalf.

Proverbs 21:21 “Whoever pursues righteousness and kindness will find life, righteousness, and honor.”
