“So now we have a high priest who perfectly fits our needs: completely holy, uncompromised by sin, with authority extending as high as God’s presence in heaven itself. Unlike the other high priests, he doesn’t have to offer sacrifices for his own sins every day before he can get around to us and our sins.” Hebrews 7:26 The Message
What has the Lord left behind for you…?
… a perfect relationship! Your life: completely holy — uncompromised by sin — Son-authorized in the Father’s presence — Son-sacrificed perfectly. It only takes a moment … a day … a year … or the sum of many years to know … to live … to believe … in this once for all life that is yours in Jesus. It is because of Him … through Him … by Him … and in Him that you are alive. He fits your needs … perfectly. Why…? Because He was never diseased .. distracted .. or divided by himself when it came to your life. And that authority extends over every moment of your life. Every part of you has been … is being … and will be made whole in Christ. It has been God commanded … God appointed … and God perfected for all time. Jesus has not only left you a perfect relationship … He is your perfect relationship for everything and everyone in your life. It only takes a moment…
“He’s done it, once and for all: offered up himself as the sacrifice. The law appoints as high priests men who are never able to get the job done right. But this intervening command of God, which came later, appoints the Son, who is absolutely, eternally perfect.” Hebrews 7:27-28 The Message
