Jesus Builds My Life Hebrews Chapter 3 Part 1

06 November, 2021

Jesus is perfect Divinity and perfect humanity. In the previous chapters we saw that we should never neglect such great salvation. If we do, the consequences will be hard on us. Let’s look into Chapter three in which emphasis is given to show Jesus’ superiority to Moses.

This is targeted at the Jews as they obeyed only the law of Moses according to the Old Testament. They could never accept Jesus as the Messiah.

Hebrews 3:1-6

Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling,fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house.3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.5 “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. 6 But Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory.

Moses was loyal to God’s Kingdom. The builder of the house is more glorious than the building itself. Jesus created everything and so he is undoubtedly greater than everyone. Moses was a servant to God and loyal as he was, Jesus was greater than all even Moses as he was the Son of God.

Hebrews 2:10

In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered

It says bringing many sons to the Son’s glory. Heaven is Holy. Jesus’ blood has purified us. Our call is a heavenly call, High call and Holy call. When we all become born again we all are partakers of heavenly calling. Jesus is the Apostle (the one who was sent by God the Father) and the High Priest. Jesus is also the ambassador of heaven as he was a delegate sent by God to earth. Jesus being so loyal he is whom we confess our confession. The beginning of Christianity is confession.

Romans 10:9

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead,you will be saved

We confess Jesus is our apostle,high priest and our master.

Matthew 10:32,33

Whoever acknowledges me before others,I will also acknowledge before my Father in heaven. 33 But whoever disowns me before others, I will disown before my Father in heaven.

The salvation that Jesus gave us is so simple and easy to accept by just confessing by word of mouth.

Captain of salvation is Jesus and no matter what be the situation we can count on him as he is the most committed loyal Son of God. He has integrity and will never change. Another reason to which Jesus is greater than Moses is because Jesus has more glory than Moses. Moses had glory but the instances he received glory from God was few and not lasting like when he was in Mount Sinai and also in other scenarios with Miriam to cite a few. The glorification Jesus possessed was far more greater like in his baptism when Father in heaven said he is the Son of God and the most significant and everlasting glorification is his resurrection. Our life is built by Jesus and maintained by him alone. Jesus is our builder.

Philippians 1:6

being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus

1 Peter 2:4-5

As you come to him, the living Stone rejected by humans but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ

In conclusion we can see the beginning verses of this chapter shows that Jesus is far more greater than Moses. And Jesus will build you up.
