“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.”
“Who does this belong to?”
One common denominator for all ages on church outings, camps, and trips are the items left in dorms, hotel rooms, and busses. Getting things matched back up with their owner can be comical and sometimes embarrassing. One mom helping with a student camp, had a box of “stuff” as she stood at the front of the bus and held each item high for someone to claim. After holding up an undergarment for a moment in front of the crowd, she realized the item was hers. Memories you can’t wash out of your brain!
In Hebrews 2:10 we find that everything belongs to God, Who created all things by His power. We were in the lost box, separated from God by our sin. Only one could step up and claim us by paying the sacrifice with His blood – Jesus, the perfect sacrifice, captain of our salvation, pioneer of our suffering. Without the passion and death of Christ, the salvation of man would have been impossible. Through Him many sons are brought to His glory. “Now I belong to Jesus, Jesus belongs to me, not for the years of time alone, but for eternity.”
