rainbowHEBREWS 7

Jesus is God’s Permanent Priesthood

SCRIPTURE

v21-22

“But he became a priest when God said to him: “The Lord has sworn and will not change his mind: you are a priest forever. Because of this oath, Jesus has become the guarantee of a better covenant.”

OBSERVATION

In the past, death prevented earthly priests from continuing in office. But Jesus is our High Priest forever and because of this, from now until eternity, He can save everyone who comes to God through Him, by interceding on their behalf. A new better covenant, with an unshakeable guarantee!

APPLICATION

Jesus is the High Priest, “the cornerstone that was rejected”. Through Him and only through Him, can we be saved. We have the honour of having the Son of God interceding on our behalf. This is almost unbelievable, but incredibly it’s true!

PRAYER

Thank you Jesus that you are our eternal High Priest and that you will intercede for us on our behalf, as long as we put our belief and trust in you. Amen.
