Daily Reading:  Hebrews 7

 

He holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever. Consequently, he is able to save to the uttermost those who draw near to God through him, since he always lives to make intercession for them. (Hebrews 7.24-25)

 

Devotional Thought: Several weeks ago, I was on a website to rent a moving truck and car trailer.  I normally eschew getting on those "chat with our representative" apps, but I had somehow gotten into one of those black holes of the internet and could not extract myself from it.  I needed help to undo a portion of my reservation.  So, I went on the chat feature.  "Nathanael," the company rep, was most gracious to help me.  He solved my problem.  I  liked him!  Later I was back on the website and needed to chat again.  I didn't get Nathanael.  Nor did I get him the next time.  Nor the next.  He no longer was there to help me.  He had moved on.

 

Aren't you glad that Jesus isn't like that?  He is different.

 

In today’s chapter, Hebrews 7, we see how Jesus is a different kind of priest from the Old Testament priests.  Jesus is not from the priestly tribe- Levi.  Also, he became a priest with an oath from God establishing him as a priest forever.  Jesus has a permanent priesthood!  His is the only such priesthood for he lives forever to intercede.

 

And not only is it permanent, his priesthood offers complete intercession.  There is no part of your life that is not covered by the intercessory work of Jesus!  Spiritual needs are satisfied in him.  Physical healing is offered through the priesthood of Jesus.  Reconciliation of relationships is possible because Jesus intercedes for you.  Emotional pain and scars are erased by the work of Jesus.

 

Do you have need of the work of God in your life?  Jesus right now intercedes before the Father on your behalf.  Praise God!

 

Prayer: Thank you, Lord, that you remain faithful as a high priest over God's house.  I know that whenever I call upon you, you are there to hear and to answer.  I trust in you, O Lord.  Amen.

 

Psalm of the Day: Psalm 51:16-19


16 You do not delight in sacrifice, or I would bring it; you do not take pleasure in burnt offerings.

17 My sacrifice, O God, is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you, God, will not despise.

18 May it please you to prosper Zion, to build up the walls of Jerusalem.

19 Then you will delight in the sacrifices of the righteous, in burnt offerings offered whole; then bulls will be offered on your altar.
