We Are His House IF….. (Hebrews 3)

February 20, 2013 by Pito

Both Moses and Jesus were faithful in the house but Jesus is the Lord of the house. The house that Jesus is building is composed of people—including Moses. We are that house…Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house…”

We are his house if… There are three classes of people today; those who are never in the house. They have no connection to Christ at all. Some are in the house, but only temporarily. They are covenantally connected to Christ, and the connection is a real one, but they are not elect. They are in the church but the church is not in them.

The true sons of the house are the elect who abide there forever. “No man can snatch them from my Father’s hand…”

The author quotes Psalm 95 and applies it to his readers. We need to guard against hardness of heart in just the same way as the Israelites in the wilderness were to guard their hearts, but many did not believe, so they were not allowed to enter into God’s rest. The warning is not hypothetical, but real, as real as the fact that they died because of unbelief.

We are not to look at our faith but to Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith. We are to see the evidences of our faith as a basketball player sees the ball, in our peripheral vision. In our peripheral vision we see whether we love the brethren, whether we hate our sin, whether we understand spiritual things, but we look straight forward to Jesus, and not at our faith. We are called to be full of faith, not full of doubt and we are called to encourage faith, not doubt, in our children.

Being full of faith, they can conquer the spirit of their age in the power  that the Spirit gives them for their generation. Let us draw near that we may go in the power of His name to serve our generation as its feeders, as its revitalizers, in conscious acts of reconciliation. Let us be fed so that we may feed others.
