The apostle of our confession

glory cloud

Sounds a bit heavy don’t you think – referring to how we confess Jesus to be in our lives.

Yet when we think about it, He builds into our lives , like an apostle would, every day.  When we think of builders, I am sure we think of Moses and the building of the Tabernacle.

In essence, Moses constructed it but God built it as in designed, and laid out the plans for it.  Even though the Tabernacle was a great build, the builder of a house has more honour than the house.  Every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.

Again, Moses served as a faithful servant to testify to the things that were to be spoken about later, but Christ, also faithful, was looking over God’s house as a son.

So when we meet with Him each day there are two things Jesus wants to build into our lives.  First, He wants to ensure that we hold fast to our confidence in Him.  Secondly, that we walk away from our time together with a pride in where we have placed our hope.

Let’s face it, we are His house if we let Him design and build it as He planned it from the day we were conceived,
