"Therefore He is able also to save forever those who draw near to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them." Hebrews 7:25
This morning and every morning, I draw near to God through Jesus. I dine at the table eating the Bread of Life which is the Word of God according to John:
"In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the Word was God." John 1:1
According to Jesus:
"I Am the Living Bread that came down out of heaven; if anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever, and the Bread also which I give for the life of the world is My flesh." John 6:51
O that we might learn to feast on the Bread of Life eternal as much as we feast on the physical bread, often resulting in obesity, which shortens our physical lives!
What a delicious slice of bread is Hebrews 7:25. Jesus, our High Priest forever gave us something the law and Levitical priesthood never could. He enabled us to draw near to God the Father now and forever through Him! Our Lord, being perfect, did not need to offer sacrifices for Himself; instead, He offered Himself for our sins once and for all.
What a love story of our Heavenly Father’s love for mankind, His creation. What love of a Son who humbled Himself being made in the likeness of man, becoming obedient to death on a cross that we might be reconciled to God forever! This love that surpasses knowledge is yours and mine for the asking. It is a free gift like no other that must be freely received. And if that wasn’t enough Jesus lives to continue to make intercession for us! If God be for us, who can be against us and prevail? God is for us. The truth of scripture reveals it so clearly. Would you join me in prayer that we all might receive a clear revelation from the Holy Spirit of this truth as never before?
In His love.
"The Lord, my God, illumines my darkness." Psalm 18:28
While biking through a tunnel this week with friends on the New River Trail I was reminded of this verse as I observed them coming out of the dark tunnel into the welcomed light removing their blindness.
