Melchizedek was a Canaanite believer. The Canaanites once knew the Lord, but turned from Him (cf- Romans 1:19-21). Melchizedek’s priesthood represents a higher priesthood than the Aaronic one. Jesus is a High Priest of the order or class of Melchizedek – this sort of priest alone will meet your needs!
* Righteous God, please show us how to live today.
“… Who has become a priest, not on the basis of a legal requirement concerning bodily descent, but by the power of an indestructible life.”
This is so important!
Jesus’ priesthood is not because of bloodline, the human lineage He was born into.
No, indeed we cannot rely on a human priests who live a span and then die.
We need a different kind of priest.
“… But he holds his priesthood permanently, because he continues forever.”
Jesus is a priest without an expiry date, He continues forever.
Because of this, because He can continually intercede for us, He can save us to the uttermost!
Praise god for this. Hallelujah, what a Saviour!
* Gracious Father in Heaven,
Thank You for Jesus, the better priest, who continues forever.
Thank You for this book, and for all Your word, which points us to Jesus.
Please help us point those around us to You.
