The One Who Leads Us To Be Saved

We know that God did not put the future world under the power of angels. Somewhere in the Scriptures someone says to God,

“What makes you care
    about us humans?
Why are you concerned
    for weaklings such as we?
You made us lower
than the angels

Yet you have crowned us
    with glory and honor.[a]
And you have put everything
    under our power!”

And now that Jesus has suffered and died, he is crowned with glory and honor!
