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. Hebrews 3:3-4
After establishing that Jesus is greater than angels, the writer of Hebrews demonstrates that Jesus is greater than Moses (and the law of Moses). Jesus is not just ‘better than’ any man that ever lived. He is categorically ‘different from’ anyone who has ever lived. His life, words and ministry call for an obedient response. In the same way God’s people were lead out of Egypt and should have responded with love, obedience and joy to God’s saving hand, we too should respond to Jesus salvation. I love how the Bible says “how then shall we escape (judgment) if we neglect so great a salvation”?
How about me? Do I hold Jesus in great esteem, the highest esteem. Do I realize He is the maker of me and everything else. Do I live a life of love, obedience and joy because of Him?
I praise You God because the answer is yes. I do love You. Today, may I be obedient and filled with joy, because of You, Jesus!
