Hebrews 3:6 “Christ, however, was faithful over God’s house as a son, and we are his house if we hold firm the confidence and the pride that belong to hope.”
The reference to us being his house caused a little research on my part today. I know the common belief that his spirit lives in us and we are his temple but this verse felt different. The verse made me think of nobility and I know very little about that. Most little girls like to dress up and play princess and mine is no exception. She often tells me she is a princess, my son is the prince, I am the queen and my husband is the king. I tease her and remind her that the princess is not in charge so she needs to remember to listen and obey the queen. A short time ago, Prince William of England married Kate bringing her into the house of Windsor. I think about her being molded and formed into royalty as it is expected. We too have been brought into a house of royalty. We are being molded and formed into royalty as it should truly be. We are his house because he is our ruler; we are his heirs and subjects. Go into your day feeling blessed to be a part of the house of Christ. Live as heirs of his kingdom and we will serve him well.
Thank you for making us a part of your royal kingdom. We are blessed to be in the house of Christ and I pray that we will live bringing honor and glory to your holy kingdom, the one true kingdom that reigns forever. You are my king; I bow to you and you alone. Amen.
