Therefore, holy brethren, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of our confession… Hebrews 3:1 (NASB)
Consider Jesus every time you feel like giving up on life, a relationship, a job or a ministry. Consider Jesus every time you are inclined to do your own thing rather than the things of God. Consider Jesus when you are tempted to walk in an old identity or label rather than walking in your new God-given identity, as one who is holy and a partaker of a heavenly calling.
Consider Jesus Who is inviting you to sit with Him at His banqueting table in heaven and to partake of the fulness of His life – of His flesh and blood. Consider Jesus Who is calling you to take your rightful place in Him and to partake of everything that belongs to you in His kingdom – His kingdom of love, righteousness, peace and joy. Consider Jesus Who invites you to partake of His grace – all of His promises.
Yes, it is time for you to seriously consider what Jesus is saying to you in His Word and by His Spirit.
Consider Jesus, the Apostle and High Priest of your confession. To confess means to say the same as. As a believer in Christ, you are called to say what Jesus says – to say what the Word of God says. When you do this, Jesus as your great High Priest carries out His Word, His salvation plan for your life and for those you are praying for.
Consider, meditate and fixate your thoughts, on Jesus Christ your Savior, Who is saying to you “Do not be afraid, I am your God. I will strengthen you. I will help you. I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.” (Is. 41:10) “Don’t give up! I will help you!” Yes, it is time for you to seriously consider what Jesus is saying to you in His Word and by His Holy Spirit and to say what He is saying!
Pray: Father, I thank-You for giving me Jesus, the One Who is not only my Savior and Redeemer, but the One Who is the Apostle and High Priest of my confession. I make the quality decision today to confess the good confession of my faith – to confess Your Word over my life and over the world around me. Help me to hold fast the confession of my hope without wavering, knowing You are so willing and so faithful to fulfill your promises to me. (1 Timothy 6:12-13; Heb. 10:23)
