THEME: WORTHY IS THE LAMB
Hebrews 3:1-6 NIV
“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,” 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.”
-The analogy of the faithful servant is depicted by the above scriptures. A comparison between Christ and Moses is shown, both who were sent by the Father to lead His people. Moses led the Israelites from bondage under Pharaoh to the promised land, and Christ led all believers from bondage under the devil both Jews and Gentiles (Hebrews 2:14-15), to the sabbath rest promised to all who believe (Hebrews 4:3,9). Jesus is seen as the builder of God’s house, for He is God, and we including Moses are a part of it, therefore ranking Christ as definitely greater than Moses. Further, Moses was a servant whereas Christ is the Son, the High priest and great Apostle and worthy of all praise. We therefore rejoice in Him for we have a sure inheritance as heirs together with Christ.
Thank You dear Lord Jesus our Great High Priest and Apostle. For above You there is none, You are great and greatly to be praised. You are worthy to be feared above all gods, for all the gods of the nations are idols, but You Lord made the heavens. Splendor and majesty are before You, strength and joy are in Your dwelling place. Oh Lord we thank You and honor You for You are good and wonderful. We give You all the worship and adoration. Dear Lord we humbly repent the many sins that we have done and humbly ask You to wash us with Your precious blood dear Jesus and purify us. We pray that You may help us to fix our thoughts on You and serve You faithfully. May You help us to walk worthy of our calling faithfully as You please. We pray that You will release Your gift of salvation to all who do not have by Your great power oh Lord. Father we pray that You will send Your Holy Spirit to us to guide us and fill us with Your wisdom. We surrender all to You oh Lord may You intervene and take over. May You guide and protect all those who are traveling by road, railway, sea, air and cover them with Your blood. May You send Your angels to protect us, together with our children and shield us from harm. We pray this trusting and believing in Jesus mighty name, Amen.
