Psal 89:27 Also I will make him [my] firstborn, higher than the kings of the earth.
Israel is called "a first born son" in Ex 4:22, and in Jer 31:9 we read, "I am a Father to Israel, and Ephraim is my first born", but Jesus Christ the Righteous is the "Only Begotten of the Father", --- the only true "First Born", higher than the kings of the earth, the First and the Last. How marvelous is the thought of such an One we are a part, --- by Faith! Through the eternal years we will be one -WITH- Him and will share in His glory, the glory as of the "Only Begotten of the Father"!
Dear Lord, help us to live in the consciousness of all it means for us to be a part and partner -WITH- Thee, the First Born! Amen.
