Today’s text identifies God’s plan for man and how the God / man Christ Jesus accomplished God’s plan so that all human beings might experience God’s full purpose in the world to come.
For He has not put the world to come, of which we speak, in subjection to angels. But one testified in a certain place, saying: “What is man that You are mindful of him, Or the son of man that You take care of him? You have made him a little lower than the angels; You have crowned him with glory and honor and set him over the works of Your hands. You have put all things in subjection under his feet.” For in that He put all in subjection under him, He left nothing that is not put under him. But now we do not yet see all things put under him. But we see Jesus, who was made a little lower than the angels, for the suffering of death crowned with glory and honor, that He, by the grace of God, might taste death for everyone.” (Hebrews 2:5–9, NKJV)
The last verse of today’s text gives us the solution to man’s every problem. We were doomed, destined to die because of our sin. But Jesus took our death for us. Now all who trust Him as Lord and Savior can have new life and know God’s purpose for their lives.
In the Book of Hebrews, we find that the Holy Spirit presents Christ as the center of deity, the center of the universe, the center of humanity, the center of authority, the center of love, the center of service, and the center of worship. In the Book of Hebrews, all things converse on Christ and all things radiate from Christ. He is the key to every page in every chapter. He is seen as the holiest among the mighty, and the mightiest among the holy. He is seen as the king crowned with many crowns, the King of kings and Lord of lords.
