“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
.. a perfect relationship! Your life: completely holy (unfathomable yet real and true about you) — uncompromised by sin (yet sin still tries to get you to take the lead) — 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 never carried disease .. was distracted by the world’s attractions .. or divided in himself when it came to your life. His authority extends over every moment of your life. Every part of you has been .. is being .. and will be made whole in Christ. Jesus has not only left you a perfect relationship .. He is the perfect relationship for everything and everyone in your life. He is the one relationship you need today for all the relationships 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
