Hebrews 3 Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, who share in the heavenly calling, fix your thoughts on Jesus, whom we acknowledge as our apostle and high priest. 2 He was faithful to the one who appointed him, just as Moses was faithful in all God’s house. 3 Jesus has been found worthy of greater honor than Moses, just as the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. 4 For every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything.
How do we get this so backwards. It is not the house but the builder that we worship. There are so many metaphors for the Church. A house with Jesus as the builder may seem to fall somewhat short of the ideal, however if you think about it the master builder has complete authority under the supervision of the owner to build according to the plans the owner has laid down np matter what the other workers have to say about it. Perhaps that is why so many people within the church are restive and rebellious when the master builder insists on something contrary to what they wish. Like spoiled children we institute ministries which are frequently antithetical to the overall mission of the Church.
If we were to, 5 Consider how far you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. (Revelation 2:5 ) We should probably reconsider many of our so called ministries, and perhaps renew some of those we have abandoned. It seems as though in many respects we have been continuing to do the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. This is a pretty clear definition of insanity.
