Jesus is better

In Hebrews 1:4-14, Jesus is compared to angels. We are left in no doubt about who is superior in that comparison.
  • Jesus is called God's Son, which has not been said about any angel (v5 For to which of the angels did God ever say, "You are my Son; today I have become your Father"? Or again, "I will be his Father, and he will be my Son"?)
  • The angels are there to worship Jesus (v6 "...when God brings his firstborn into the world, he says, "Let all God's angels worship him".)
  • The angels are servants, while Jesus is the king sitting at God's right hand (v7-9, 13-14)
  • Jesus is eternal and was involved in the work of creation, angels are created beings (v10-12)
It doesn't get any better than Jesus, the angels recognise that and worship Him. Whatever it is that we are pursuing: money, image, family, friends, sex, power, religion, status, comfort, control, angels... Jesus is better
