Morning Prayer Guide - Thursday

Read: Hebrews 3:1-6 and Psalm 100

The writer of Hebrews is writing to the Jewish community of the dispersion. Here he writes about how Christ is greater than Moses. While Moses had an important role to play in how we understand God, Christ’s work was greater than Moses’. The word “house”, used repeatedly in this passage, can refer to a dwelling, but here actually refers to a family. By extension, it refers to the Church. Christ is the architect and builder of the Church, and because of that he has much greater honor than the Church itself.

How does this speak to you? Take a few moments to reflect on it. Then, write your own prayer.
