Therefore, holy brothers and sisters, partakers of a heavenly calling, consider the Apostle and High Priest of our confession: Jesus; He was faithful to Him who appointed Him, as Moses also was in all His house. For He has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses, by just so much as the builder of the house has more honor than the house. For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God. Now Moses was faithful in all God’s house as a servant, for a testimony of those things which were to be spoken later; but Christ was faithful as a Son over His house—whose house we are, if we hold firmly to our confidence and the boast of our hope.

Hebrews 3:16

While there have been many faithful ministers of God’s good Will in our spiritual history, the only one to truly fulfill God’s will was God Himself in the form of Jesus. We as followers of His way understand this, that He is a better minister in every way and is worthy of all glory and praise.

More than that, the reason we give him that glory is also the proof of His intervention; he saved us and built us up into his house, the Church. That is why we can boast in Him.
