The Good Seed - Wednesday, May 17, 2017
by GBV Dillenburg GmbH

But this man, because he continueth ever, hath an unchangeable priesthood. Wherefore he is able also to save them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever li,veth to make intercession for them.
Hebrews 7:24-25

Aaron’s priesthood lasted only as long as he was alive. It was, however, hereditary and after his death passed on to his son, Eleazar. But he, too, like all his successors, was “prevented by death from continuing” (v.23). The Lord Jesus, by contrast, “always lives”; His priesthood is, accordingly, unchangeable.
Whoever switches on a light in bright sunshine, demonstrates that the sun is insufficient for him. It is no different if one constitutes a human priesthood between God and men on earth. Doubt is thus cast on the consequences of Christ’s sacrifice; His high priesthood in heaven is reckoned to be insufficient. Yet Holy Scripture declares unmistakably that “by one offering he has perfected for ever those who are being sanctified” (Hebrews 10:14). God will remember their sins and iniquities no more. Therefore they have liberty through the blood of Jesus, i.e. without a human mediator on earth, to enter the holiest, the presence of God (cf. Hebrews 10:17 & 19)
The work of redemption accomplished by the Lord Jesus is perfect. And as the high priest with God He is able to feel for us and sympathise with our weaknesses. He was Himself tempted in all things as we are, “yet without sin” (Hebrews 4:15). He does not want us to stumble. So He intercedes with God on our behalf, and we can fearlessly approach God to worship Him or pray to Him. Because the Lord Jesus’ priesthood is unchangeable, He will rescue us in every danger.
Today’s reading: 2 Samuel 15:19-37
