5 神並沒有把我們所說的“將來的世界”，交給天使管轄；6但是有人在聖經上某一處證實說：“人算甚麼，你竟記念他？世人算甚麼，你竟眷顧他？7你使他比天使稍低微一點（或譯作「你使他暫時比天使微小」），卻賜給他榮耀尊貴作冠冕，8使萬物都服在他的腳下。”既然萬有都服了他，就沒有剩下一樣不服他的了。但是現在我們還沒有看見萬有都服他。9不過，我們看見那位暫時成了比天使卑微的耶穌，因為受了死的痛苦，就得了榮耀尊貴作冠冕，好叫他因著 神的恩典，為萬人嘗了死味。（來二5-9，新譯本）
5For it was not to angels that God subjected the world to come, of which we are speaking. 6It has been testified somewhere, “What is man, that you are mindful of him, or the son of man, that you care for him? 7You made him for a little while lower than the angels; you have crowned him with glory and honor, 8putting everything in subjection under his feet.” Now in putting everything in subjection to him, he left nothing outside his control. At present, we do not yet see everything in subjection to him. 9But we see him who for a little while was made lower than the angels, namely Jesus, crowned with glory and honor because of the suffering of death, so that by the grace of God he might taste death for everyone. (Hebrews 2:5-9, ESV)
16But he said to him, “A man once gave a great banquet and invited many. 17And at the time for the banquet he sent his servant to say to those who had been invited, ‘Come, for everything is now ready.’ 18But they all alike began to make excuses. The first said to him, ‘I have bought a field, and I must go out and see it. Please have me excused.’ 19And another said, ‘I have bought five yoke of oxen, and I go to examine them. Please have me excused.’ 20And another said, ‘I have married a wife, and therefore I cannot come.’ (Luke 14:16–20)
Humans will rule the world to come
Why humans do not rule the world now
Jesus’ death allows humans to rule the world to come
Don’t let what is good keep you from what is great.
