Greater Than Your Moses
Hebrews 3:3 “Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses.” Many of you reached out over the last couple weeks to let me know that you were praying for me. Sunday’s sermon was just fine, but it was probably the hardest message I’ve ever prepared. I shared about some of the struggles and how an encounter with God cleared the writer’s block. When I focused on the sermon, I couldn’t get a word. But when God invited me to forget the sermon and focus on him, I got an incredible love encounter, and the sermon thrown in for free.

He’s greater than bad things like cancer, unemployment or loneliness. But he’s also greater than the good things, like family, ministry and delivering His word. The reality is that both bad things, and good things, can keep us from the greatest thing. Moses served as the greatest prophet in the entire faith of the Jewish people. So the author used the illustration that Jesus is greater than Moses to bring the Hebrew Christians back into divine alignment. It’s hard for us to understand how extreme that statement is when we didn’t grow up memorizing Torah. But today God reminds us that whatever it is that we honor, whatever our Moses is… Jesus is greater. Lord, thanks for loving me and bringing me back into your presence. I commit to putting you first and setting my thoughts on you today. In your son’s most precious name, Amen.
