Wednesday Wallpaper: The Builder of All Things is God

Scriptures: Hebrews 3:1-6
by Jacob Abshire on September 23, 2015

Jesus is superior to Moses. The name “Moses” was enough to grab the attention of any Hebrew. He was the greatest leader in their history. He took a ruined, oppressed people and formed a thriving nation. He was God’s leader for God’s people. Yet, Jesus is superior to Moses. In Hebrews 3, the writer describes the Israelite people as a house that Moses built and faithfully stewarded. For this, he is worthy of some glory. But Jesus, who is called the builder of all things (including Moses and the Israelite identity), is “worthy of more glory than Moses.” Moses is a created man. Jesus is the creator of man. Moses is the servant in the house, but Jesus is owner. Let this design remind you of Jesus’ superiority over all things.

“Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God’s house. 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. (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, 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.”
