Considering Hope

Pastor Jay continues the series on Hebrews with this week’s sermon “Considering Hope” from Hebrews 3:1-6.

Hebrews 3:1-6 (ESV)

Jesus Greater Than Moses

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.

Hold onto your hope by considering Jesus.

  • Consider His heavenly calling in which you share.
  • Consider Him as apostle and high priest of our faith.
  • Consider His faithfulness like that of Moses.
  • Consider His glorious worth beyond Moses.
  • builder vs. house
  • Son vs. servant
  • Consider His superior glory, so that you hold fast to your confident hope.
