God is the Builder

Hebrews 3:4 “For every house is built by someone, but GOD is the builder of everything.”

I run into people during my day that like to tell me what I should believe, how I should believe, and who I should believe.

Hebrews 3:15 “As has just been said “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

Of course, this is only about the Hebrews, the Israelites who wouldn’t listen to GOD and rebelled, right?

I have had cause to reflect lately…

I rebel against a lot of things and I believe I am right in what I rebel against.

There are some around me who rebel against things I don’t think are worth rebelling about.

Funny thing is… I think I am right!

Hebrews 3:15 “As has just been said “Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion.”

I believe I miss “GOD” opportunities and I believe I miss GOD when I harden my heart.

Hebrews 3:4 “For every house is built by someone, but GOD is the builder of everything.”

If I believe GOD created every child, woman, and man… and I do! Then GOD created those I disagree with, those I rebel against.

  • When Jesus was taken into custody, he didn’t rebel.
  • When Jesus was brought before Pilot, he didn’t rebel.
  • When Jesus was brought before the soldiers, he didn’t rebel.
  • When Jesus was brought before the cross, he didn’t rebel.
  • When Jesus breathed his last, he didn’t rebel.

Jesus loved!

Somehow, this year, I want to try to be more like Jesus… I want to love more…

AMEN!
