A Journey Through the New Testament Letters

Morgan Eseke

My name is Morgan! I'm a grateful recipient of God's grace and blessed to be David's bride. I love Audrey Hepburn, CrossFit, and heart-to-hearts over a good cup of coffee. I regularly put my foot in my mouth, burn things in the toaster oven (poor David), and get the giggles when I'm too sleepy.

I also love telling stories. In fact, I believe that we all are called to be storytellers (Acts 1:8). Isn't a witness just someone simply telling their experience or story? I love writing true stories of our Great Author on my blog: www.livingapageturner.org.

WHICH IS BETTER: THE ARCHITECT OR HIS HOUSE?

Hebrews 3:1-11

Hebrews 3:1-11

Jesus Greater Than Moses

3:1 Therefore, holy brothers, [1] 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 [2] 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. [3]

A Rest for the People of God

Therefore, as the Holy Spirit says,

“Today, if you hear his voice,
do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion,
on the day of testing in the wilderness,
where your fathers put me to the test
and saw my works for forty years.
10 Therefore I was provoked with that generation,
and said, ‘They always go astray in their heart;
they have not known my ways.’
11 As I swore in my wrath,
‘They shall not enter my rest.’” (ESV)
