Hebrews 3:1–6 (ESV)
Jesus Greater Than Moses
3 Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, 2 who was faithful to him who appointed him,
just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house. 3 For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses—as much more glory as the builder of a house has more 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 house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 6 but
Christ is faithful over God’s house as a son. And we are his house, if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope.
Though Moses was a faithful servant
in God’s household, Jesus is the faithful Son. Since Jesus calls you to your heavenly home, you can be confident that you will share in God’s glory. However, beware not to boast of your own faithfulness. Only God is holy and righteous. In Christ,
you freely share in God’s holiness. He is calling you to glory.
I pray: Lord Jesus, Son of the Father, fill me with Your Spirit of faithfulness. Amen.
