The book of Hebrews exalts Christ as highly as anyone ever could, and does so from the very beginning of the book. Hebrews 1 provides remarkable views of the divine glory of Jesus. So, when the elevator begins to rapidly descend in Hebrews 2, and the author shows us the humbling, the condescension of Christ, it’s striking. This one who sits on the very throne of God is not ashamed to call us brothers! He was humbled all the way to death. In this article for Small Town Summits, I reflect on how both the exaltation and the humbling of Christ provide grounds for perseverance in life and ministry.
