One Great Hope

PRAYING FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, CHURCH AND NATION

Find your hope in the perfect sufficiency of Christ as redeemer (Heb 7:15-17) #JesusPriestForever

MORNING WATCH NOTES:

Jesus Christ is here declared a “priest forever” of a different kind (revealed by the likeness of Melchizedek in Gen 14:17-20 and Heb 6:19,20). How is Christ different?

1) Christ is from a different tribe – the tribe of Judah unlike those of the tribe of Levi (v14).

2) Christ is a priest forever, whereas the old system of priests required new priests to replace those who died (vv3,18,23-25).

3) Christ is holy and blameless, unstained by sin (v26), unlike other High Priests who needed cleansing from sin (vv27,28).

4) Christ’s authority is established by an oath given by God (vv20,21). Jesus Christ is a High Priest forever (Psm 110:4).

Lord my one great hope is in your perfect sufficiency as mediator between God and man.
