we are his house

Christ is faithful as the Son over God’s house. And we are his house, if indeed we hold firmly to our confidence and the hope in which we glory. [Hebrews 3:6 NIV]

I love the word pictures that are painted in the scriptures. Sometimes believers are portrayed as the body of Christ. Peter writes of us as living stones laid upon the foundation of Christ. In this verse we are called his house. Bettered rendered as his household. Sons and daughters each of us.

The writer presents conditions to membership in this household. I do not think that he is saying that if we do these things we are members. In contrast he is saying that family members do these things. God's children are known for their confidence in God. These celebrate the hope that they have in him.

We glory today in the hope that you have placed in our hearts Lord.

... this devotion is part of a series about the book of Hebrews.
