At our Regional Meeting at Lady Manners School, Andy Davies' preached from Hebrews chapter 2 versus 1 to 9.
Andy started by encouraging us to see our lives in the context of the big picture. He said that most pastoral issues in his experience came from focusing on what is happening ''now' rather than seeing things in the light of the big picture.
Verse one encourages us to listen to Jesus and not to drift. It's easy to drift when we stop listening to Jesus. This can happen in hardship but also when things seem to be going okay.
So what keeps us listening? The greatness of our salvation, Jesus has gone before us and we know that eternity awaits us. We get a glimpse of eternity in Verses 5 to 9.
Amazingly what we see here is that everything will be subject to us, that this passage taken from Psalm 8 is about us, it's about 'what is man.' There is a magnificent eternity. But what stands in the way is death, it triumphs everywhere. So presently we don't see everything subject to us
