But Christ is Faithful

Fruit of Faithfulness Series: Day 18

We are staying in Hebrews for today.

 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. Hebrews 3:6

Let’s explore this further in the context of the entire verse:

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. He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. “Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”[a] bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future. 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.

He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house.

Jesus was faithful to God to carry out everything that he was sent on earth to do by the one who sent him.

Moses was faithful as a servant in all God’s house,”[a] bearing witness to what would be spoken by God in the future.

God’s house relates to the church, or God’s people.

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.

Christ is faithful to us because God is faithful to us. God said he would send His son down to save us.

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. -John 3:16

I was at a leadership conference where the speaker mentioned that God is the master builder and he oversees the building of the house, not building the house himself, but contracting out the work to others.

God is the master builder. Jesus is the contractor. We are the workers, building our house-His house.

As the workers we’ve been hand-picked to perform certain tasks that are necessarily in order for the proper house to be built.

Just like the master builder trusts the contractor to hire the right people for the job, God trusts us with the tasks He has given us.

We can rest in His hope and faith because that is what He modeled for us.

I don’t have a transformational story to share. I have the story of continued hope and perseverance that drives me, and the motivation to keep building the house, “laying the bricks” comes from the faithfulness Jesus demonstrated through his life on earth.

Faithfulness to take the good with the bad, to suffer and rejoice. Ultimately, God’s faithfulness allowed Jesus to demonstrate his faithfulness by remaining in Him.

Now it is our turn.

 

Daily challenge:

Sometimes we think of our assignment or task God has given us as some big thing, but I want us to focus on the small bricks you are laying. The meticulous effort and energy we are exerting for the glory of God is timely and appointed to us from God.

We see a meaningless duty and God sees a meaningful destiny.

Think about what are some of the smaller bricks you are laying each day in order to build your house?

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.

Where does our confidence and hope come from?

He who is faithful will provide until the second coming of Jesus Christ.
