“consider Jesus…who was faithful to him who appointed him…”
Maybe I’m on a Jesus roll because for the last couple of days in Hebrews his name keeps highlighting on the page. I don’t think it’s my Kindle malfunctioning. And now my eye catches “For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory…”
I just have to wonder if I give Him more glory. More glory, than say, my favorite TV show or new favorite book or… my own opinion?… I guess I am more likely to look to myself as being the house builder instead of being the house. And boy am I a fixer-upper!
Apparently it was Solomon – the builder of God’s house – who wrote Ps. 127:
“Unless the LORD builds the house, those who build it labor in vain.”
Lord, forgive me when I think I am the house builder instead of the house.
Forgive me when I ascribe glory to other things when Jesus is the one worthy of more glory than any of these.
Remind me that in being Your house, I can be confident and boast about the hope and life and eternity I have found in You. Let that be my boast to a hurting and needy world.
The builder of all things is God.
“Some boast in chariots, others in horses; but I will boast in the name of the Lord” Ps. 20

God is the contractor and Jesus is in the home restoration business.
