VIII. MAIN BODY:

A. Man was made a little lower than angels

"For some little time You have ranked him lower than and inferior to the angels;"

Hebrews 2:9 (Amplified Bible)

2:9 But we are able to see Jesus, Who was ranked lower than the angels for a little while, crowned with glory and honor because of His having suffered death, in order that by the grace (unmerited favor) of God [to us sinners] He might experience death for every individual person.

Psalms 8:5 (Amplified Bible)

8:5 Yet You have made him but a little lower than God [or heavenly beings], and You have crowned him with glory and honor.

B. Man was crowned with glory and honor

"You have crowned him with glory and honor"

Crowned means:

1) to encircle with a crown, to crown: the victor in a contest

2) to adorn, to honour

JESUS is in us that's why we have this glory and honor in Him.

We prioritize and desire glory and honor in our lives.

Romans 2:7 (Amplified Bible)

2:7 To those who by patient persistence in well-doing [springing from piety] seek [unseen but sure] glory and honor and [the eternal blessedness of] immortality, He will give eternal life.

We already have glory and honor from JESUS.

Romans 2:10 (Amplified Bible)

2:10 But glory and honor and [heart] peace shall be awarded to everyone who [habitually] does good, the Jew first and also the Greek (Gentile).

2 Corinthians 4:18 (Amplified Bible)

4:18 Since we consider and look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen; for the things that are visible are temporal (brief and fleeting), but the things that are invisible are deathless and everlasting.

C. Man was set over GOD's works

"and set him over the works of Your hands,"
