ANGLICAN DAILY FOUNTAIN DEVOTIONAL FOR 7 MARCH 2022
TOPIC: THE SUPREMACY OF CHRIST’S PRIESTHOOD
SCRIPTURE: Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10
Anglican Daily Fountain 7th March 2022 | STUDY:
Today the writer of Hebrews reminds us that as Children of God, we have obtained total access to God through our High Priest – the Lord Jesus Christ (Heb. 5:5-10). Jesus mediates between us and God and assures us of God’s forgiveness. Unlike the high priest who could go before God only once a year, Christ is always at God’s Right Hand, interceding for us.
Jesus has more authority than the Jewish high priests because He is truly God and truly man. Born as a man, lived among men, went through the same human challenges and temptations without sin (vv. 14-15), he therefore, completely understands our weaknesses and sympathises with us. He is always available when we pray and can give us strength to overcome our trials and temptations.
Beloved, at times, we will undergo trials because we want to obey God’s will. Remember, Jesus still sits at the right hand of God and makes intercession for us daily; and his priesthood is forever. Learn to depend on His grace alone and approach Him boldly to obtain mercy and help in time of need.
Prayer: Lord, fill me with courage when faced with trials and temptations so that Christ will be honoured in my life. Amen.
