All we long for is to know the Christ
and the power of his resurrection,
to share in the sufferings of Christ
and become like him in his death.
New Testament Reading - God Has Spoken by His Son
1Long ago God spoke in many different ways to our fathers through the prophets, in visions, dreams, and even face to face,a telling them little by little about his plans.
2But now in these days he has spoken to us through his Son to whom he has given everything and through whom he made the world and everything there is.
3 God’s Son shines out with God’s glory, and all that God’s Son is and does marks him as God. He regulates the universe by the mighty power of his command. He is the one who died to cleanse us and clear our record of all sin, and then sat down in highest honor beside the great God of heaven.
4 Thus he became far greater than the angels, as proved by the fact that his name “Son of God,” which was passed on to him from his Father, is far greater than the names and titles of the angels.. . . . . Hebrews 1:1-4
