Question of the Day: What was the purpose of Christ’s suffering? (Hebrews 2:10-12)
Scripture of the Day: Hebrews 3:1-6 (S.O.A.P. Hebrews 3:3-4)
Jesus and Moses
Therefore, holy brothers and sisters,[a] partners in a heavenly calling, take note of Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess,[b] 2 who is faithful to the one who appointed Him, as Moses was also in God’s[c] house.[d] 3 For He has come to deserve greater glory than Moses, just as the builder of a house deserves greater honor than the house itself! 4 For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. 5 Now Moses was faithful in all God’s[e] house[f] as a servant, to testify to the things that would be spoken. 6 But Christ[g] is faithful as a son over God’s[h] house. We are of His house,[i] if in fact we hold firmly[j] to our confidence and the hope we take pride in.[k]
By Christ’s suffering He completed the work necessary for our salvation.
In Christ we have a better covenant and an eternal hope. God is the great builder of everything. If our foundation rests on the rock of Christ – we have this eternal hope. In God’s building plan Christ is the cornerstone. If we are in the family and house that God built – we will rise to the heights of glory.
Moses showed amazing faithfulness, but Jesus showed PERFECT faithfulness.
Love – Moses showed amazing faithfulness but Jesus showed perfect faithfulness
Jesus is the most high, he is the messiah and we are to give thanks, honor and humble ourselves during our time of worship and prayer with him. He paid the highest penalty, death, so we could have eternal life. We are to always give him the respect and honor he deserves.
