HIGHER THAN HEAVENS
“ For such an high priest became us, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and made higher than the heavens”
A farmer brought the egg of an eagle home and put it among eggs laid by his hen. When the eggs were hatched, the little eaglet grew together with the chicks, unaware of any difference. When it heard a sound made by a flying eagle on three consecutive times, the eaglet soon realised that it was different from the chicks. It suddenly spread its wings and flew up as the chicks watched in amazement. The eaglet was different from the chicks, it never came down again. Although, you are in the world, you are not of the world (John 17:16). You must live above the world. God expects you to grow into spiritual maturity. You must grow higher everyday in faith, prayer, knowledge of God’s Word, witnessing and in your academics. Like Christ who was made higher than the heavens, you must be holy, harmless, undefiled and separate from sinners to rise above your equals in every sphere of life.
