Imperatives from the Book of Hebrews Pt.2

Fix Your Thoughts on Jesus

And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are partners with those called to heaven, think carefully about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s messenger and High Priest. For he was faithful to God, who appointed him, just as Moses served faithfully when he was entrusted with God’s entire house.But Jesus deserves far more glory than Moses, just as a person who builds a house deserves more praise than the house itself. For every house has a builder, but the one who built everything is God.Moses was certainly faithful in God’s house as a servant. His work was an illustration of the truths God would reveal later. But Christ, as the Son, is in charge of God’s entire house. And we are God’s house, if we keep our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ.  Hebrews 33:1-6 NLT

Jesus Christ, greater than Moses, greater than the angels. He is faithful over God’s household of which we are members. He is our high priest who became flesh like us and knows what it means to be a human. He suffered for our sins and is now exalted to a position of glory and honour at the right hand of the Father. Nothing should occupy our attention like Jesus. As heirs and joint heirs with Christ we should fix our gaze on Christ. We should get to know Him, trust Him, love Him, walk with Him, suffer with Him, be rooted and grounded in Him, believe Him, and adore Him.  He should always occupy first place in our hearts.
