“For this Man was counted worthy of more glory than Moses, inasmuch as He Who has built the house has more honor than the house—for every house is built by some man; but He that built all things is God.”

Hebrews 3:3-4

When we realize He is the Architect, rightful Owner, construction Superintendent, job Foreman, daily Worker, Supplier, etc., we will be thankful for the privilege to work alongside Him and be His place-of-abode.

“But He that built all things is God.”

A simple, succinct statement.  But, how mind-boggling the implications.

Although we now can peer into a single cell and examine the multiple strands of DNA, which, if extracted, would measure 6’ in length if laid end-to-end. . .and even though we can unlock the genetic coding and understand how our 46 chromosomes work together to make us who we are. . .and even though we can explain how atoms operate. . .and how physics and philosophy affect us. . .the fact remains that “He Who built all things is God.”

Atheists can deny His existence.  Scientists can decry His involvement and intricate Plan.  Philosophers can debate Who He is and IF He’s still at work.

But, the fact remains “He Who built (and continues to sustain) all things is God” (Heb. 1:3b; Acts 17:28).

That’s why “this Man—the God-Man, the ‘second Adam’ (I Cor. 15:45)—is counted worthy of more glory than Moses.”

One delivered from slavery; the Other delivers from sin.

One was an instrument used by the One Who sent him; the Other is the One Who sent him back then and then came Himself to “purge our sins by Himself” (Heb. 1:3c).

He is the Rock that forms the foundation of our faith.  His Love is the roof that covers us (Song of Sol. 2:4) and the glue that holds the house (our lives, the Church, etc.) together.  And, it is our being “fitly joined together” (Eph. 4:16) by the Master Builder that produces the “perfecting of the saints and edifying of the Body of Christ” (Eph. 4:12).  Hallelujah!

We must also remember “unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain who build it” (Ps. 127:1).  Simply put, unless we submit to the Architect’s Plan for our lives, family, church, business, nation, etc., the “house” will always be off-center and unlevel.  Unless we allow His “Chief Carpenter” (the Holy Spirit) to be the “Construction Superintendent” in sanctification, we’ll always out-of-square.

Just as we can tell how good a mason is by looking at how straight his brick line is. . .and just as we can readily tell how good a roofer is by looking at how straight his shingles are. . .so can others look at our lives and see if we’re a product of the Master Builder or are trying to do things by ourselves.  May we glorify Him today in all we say and do by submitting to His “rule, line, square and level” (Is. 44:13); only then can we rest assured that our house is the kind He wants to live in and will weather the storms we encounter (Mt. 7:24-27).
