Too often we think too little of Jesus Christ.
We are consumed with thoughts about our schedules and concerns about our children and fears about the economy and election and desires for new possessions (that new outfit or piece of technology). And we forget to think about Christ.
But consider Jesus Christ (Heb. 3:1).
- He is the Apostle and High Priest of our confession (v. 1).
- He was faithful to Him who appointed Him (v. 2).
- He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses (v. 3)
- He was faithful as a Son over His house (v. 6) — and we are the house if we believe in Him!
There is no apostle or priest higher than Him. We confess Him and no one else. He was given the infinite task of eternal redemption and He (alone) was faithful to accomplish it. He is worthy of more glory than the most imminent of men — even a man like Moses. And He is faithful over the household of faith, caring for it not as an entrusted slave, but as the Son caring for His Father’s possessions.
This is Jesus Christ. He is better than it all. Consider — look at, think about, reflect and meditate on — Him.
These are glorious, life-giving, life-altering truths. Be careful not to harden your hearts to them (vv. 8, 15) by testing God with pleasures usurping His position on His exalted throne (vv. 9-10). Don’t be hardened by indulging in deceitful sins (vv. 12-13). Do not be disobedient (it has eternal consequences, v. 18). Do not be an unbeliever (v. 19).
Today. Consider Jesus Christ.
