There’s Nothing Better

“Being made so much better than the angels, as he hath by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.” (Heb. 1:4)

Billie Burke was a famous actress in years gone by. While enjoying a transatlantic ocean trip, she noticed that a gentleman at the next table was suffering from a bad head cold. “Are you uncomfortable?” she asked. The man nodded. “I’ll tell you just what to do about it.” She offered. “Go back to your stateroom and drink lots of orange juice. Take two aspirins. Cover yourself with all the blankets you can find. Sweat the cold out. I know just what I’m talking about. I’m Billie Burke from Hollywood.” The man smiled. “Thanks” he said, “and I’m Dr. Mayo from the Mayo Clinic.”

This actress didn’t realize the person she was talking to was so much better than her when it came to medical advice. Likewise, the writer of Hebrews makes a point to tell us how good Jesus is. Why? Because if we do not know how good He is, we will always look for something better.

Some religions worship angels. Why? Because they haven’t learned that Christ is “so much better than the angels.”

What is it you are seeking after in life? What is it you hope to find that will satisfy that empty hole in your soul? Turn to Jesus! Why? Because He is so much better! He can truly meet your need.
