Glimpses Of The Great God: Day Twenty Seven


Now there have been many of those priests,

since death prevented them from continuing in office;

but because Jesus lives forever,

He has a permanent priesthood.

Therefore He is able to save completely

those who come to God through Him,

because He always lives to intercede for them.

Such a high priest meets our need —

one who is holy, blameless, pure, set apart form sinners,

exalted above the heavens.

Unlike the other high priests,

He does not need to offer sacrifices day and night,

first for His own sins, and then for the sins of the people.

He sacrificed for their sins once for all when He offered Himself.

For the law appoints as high priest men who are weak;

but the oath, which came after the law,

appointed the Son, who has been made perfect forever.

Hebrews 7:23-28

Oh, how we need to gaze at this Jesus, our high priest.  He’s alive! He’s near.  He wants to be to us everything we need as our advocate and high priest.  He is there at the Father’s right hand, representing you and me to God, presenting His blood as the price for all the debt we owe God, past, present and future.  He calls us to come close to Him and feel His love.
