The verses in Hebrews 3:1-6 build on what the readers know of Judaism and how esteemed Moses was to the Jews. He had led the Jews out of bondage in Egypt, brought them the Ten Commandments, and wrote the first five books of the Old Testament.
Moses was a faithful servant to the house of God but Jesus was the architect and builder of the house (v. 3). The characteristic of Christ as high priest most prominently set out in these verses is that He is the faithful Son over the house of God.
If we, study and think about the characteristics of Christ by understanding how He lived on earth, we gain insight for how to live our own lives. He leads us as a friend to great faith and accomplishment. We are the heirs of Christ not because we are perfect but by grace.
The right steps we can take are to always worship the Lord because God’s love found us first. Christ is the architect and builder of our life and can smooth out the rough edges so we fit into the Kingdom.
Sometimes our priorities get out of order and we put our time into activities that really don’t matter that much but if our time is put into worship and praise of the Lord, we are building a life that matters.
The below picture was taken at the Cathedral Church of the Holy Spirit commonly known as Guildford Cathedral located just southwest of London in Guildford, Surrey, England. I took this while I was on a study/travel trip to England in 1983.
Because of Christ, we are considered the Temple of God because His Spirit lives in us so what is really important is to remove distractions, set up a time, set up a place, and spend time with God on a daily basis. If we do, we are putting first things first and everything else has a much better chance to fall in place.
This day with God will be amazing because things fall into place because of His grace.
Because of the Savior,
there is a change in behavior;
following where He leads
and doing good deeds;
accepting the truth
and teaching our youth;
learning His ways
and giving Him praise.
This day with You Lord, we have a plan to follow. You are the architect and builder that has provided the plan for us to follow as we make choices. Today, help us to gain insight as we seek to take in what is good for our body and soul. We hunger for what is good for our soul and seek freedom to live a fulfilling life through Christ. Amen.
