[49] Then Nathanael declared, “Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the king of Israel!”
[[50] Jesus answered him, “Because I said to you, ‘I saw you under the fig tree,’ do you believe? You will see greater things than these.” [51] And he said to him, “Truly, truly, I say to you, heaven opened, and the angels of God ascending and descending on the Son of Man.”
Jesus was explicit in calling himself the Son of Man.  Why? The Jews were awaiting, as Nathanael said – the Son of God, the king of Israel. The jews were waiting for a mighty earthly king to lead them. Jesus uses the unique title, Son of Man, to be understood as Holy and revered in a supernatural sense.  A supernatural King of kings, not an earthly king at all.
Jesus is not our homeboy.  I’m sure that phrases like that are not meant to be disrespectful but, though we walk and talk with Him and our hearts are filled with His Holy Spirit, He’s not just some magical earthly big brother to protect us. He should always be revered as our Holy Savior with no earthly equivalent. He’s not just they mystical figure we call on when we’re in trouble
Jesus I love you. I revere you. I am undeservedly redeemed by your blood. Thank you for filling my heart with Your Spirit, for your guidance in this life, and for allowing me to walk with you every moment of every day.  Forgive me at times when I forget how good You are; how mighty you are; or if ever I don’t revere you as I should. I pray that all I do glorifies you. In Jesus’ mighty and holy name I pray. Amen.
