Christ is the Master, Man is the Servant (Hebrews 3:1-6)

Tony FelichTony Felich, May 8, 2005
Part of the Exposition of Hebrews series, preached at a Morning Worship service

Against the human propensity to idolize certain human beings, this passage reinforces the mastery of Christ over the Church.

• Consider Jesus (1)
~ Apostle (representative of God to man)
~ High Priest (representative of man to God)

• Christ is more glorious than any man-even Moses! (2-6a)
~ God’s House (the Church)
~ The Builder of God’s House (God)
~ Caretaker of God’s House (Christ)
~ Servant of God’s House (Moses)

• Perseverance is the Test of Reality (6b)
~Balance between believer’s promised security and his/her necessary perseverance
~ Our Confidence and Hope = Christ

Hebrews 3:1-6

3:1 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. (ESV)
