Our High Priest

Over the next four days my wife, Kerry, will be writing the devotionals as I will be on a trip without internet, electricity, or plumbing.

Your people shall be volunteers in the day of your power.  In the beauties of your holiness; from the womb of the morning you have the dew of your youth.  The Lord has sworn and will not relent.  You are a priest forever according to the order of Melchizedek. Psalm 110:3-4

It is interesting to me that the word “volunteer” is used here, we won’t be pressed to be with Him, we will volunteer, we won’t be able to wait for the opportunity to volunteer as we see His power.

Next, a picture is shown of how beautiful holiness is, from the womb to the youth. Isn’t it beautiful to see a sweet child? The beauty of God is that He can take the worse sinner and change them into a holy person, someone we see as beautiful in heart, as we repent and allow God to cleanse us we can have that beauty of a sweet child in His presence.

Allow God to do His work in your heart giving Him your sin and all the ugly things in your heart and asking Him to give you the beauty of holiness.

The order of Melchizedek is forever.  God’s promise to you is forever.  Paul talked about the sin that so easily ensnares us but our hope is the work God is doing in us to make us holy forever.

Jesus chose to go through the things we go through so that he could come along side us with compassion for all we are going through.  We don’t know all the things that Jesus went through in His life here on earth, but the Bible said he suffered (or was tempted) in all points like us and yet without sin. “Therefore, in all things He had to be made like His brethren, that He might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make propitiation for the sins of the people. For in that He Himself has suffered, being tempted He is able to aid those who are tempted.”

Forever Jesus will be our high priest.
