Our Perfect Priest

Our Perfect Priest

What formerly was,

can be no longer;

let go of the law,

there is One stronger.

Though former priests died,

only One remains;

He who is righteous,

Remover of stains.

Because He sinned not,

He is our High Priest;

our Portion always,

Love will never cease.

He saves completely,

those who come to God;

holy and blameless,

Thy staff and Thy rod.

No longer by law,

but by perfect oath;

He sinned not and saves,

our eternal hope.

We’re far from perfect,

but Jesus, He is;

intercedes for us,

so we now may live.

(Responding to Hebrews 7:18-28)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You that You sent Your Son to be the perfect sacrifice for the sins of all. Thank You that not only was the sacrifice enough to call those who come to You clean, but He is now seated beside You, interceding on our behalf. Thank You that the oath appointing Jesus as our high priest, will forever remain. Forgive us for acting as if anything other than total surrender to You, will save. Teach us to trust You completely – in all things and at all times. Thank You that Your ways are higher than our ways, (Isaiah 55:9) and that You are aware and attentive to all. Help us to live accordingly. May our surrender and trust show many the way to salvation in You. Let Your light shine brightly through us. Amen.
