Hebrews 3:1-6 (NLT)

1 And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are bound for heaven, think about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s Messenger and High Priest.

2 For he was faithful to God, who appointed him, just as Moses served faithfully and was entrusted with God’s entire house.

4 For every house has a builder, but God is the one who made everything.

5 Moses was certainly faithful in God’s house, but only as a servant. His work was an illustration of the truths God would reveal later.

6 But Christ, the faithful Son, was in charge of the entire household. And we are God’s household, if we keep up our courage and remain confident in our hope in Christ.

JESUS Verse 1:

1 And so, dear brothers and sisters who belong to God and are bound for heaven, think about this Jesus whom we declare to be God’s Messenger and High Priest.

CONSIDER ( And So… THINK ABOUT…) "Pay attention and continually observe!" Put your mind on Jesus… keep it there and understand Him in all ways!

Anointed, Holy one of God; Mediator, Savior, Overcame the ENEMY and DEATH for LIFE!
