“But he holds his priesthood permanently because he continues forever.”
This is a powerful statement about the nature of our high priest and His ability to continually intercede for us. As long as we live on this earth, Jesus will be in the holy of holies making intercession for us. Because He lives forever, His priesthood endures forever.
This is a powerful statement about the nature of our savior. He lives forever. Key to all that Jesus accomplished on this earth in behalf of mankind is His resurrection from the dead. We are powerless against death, either to stop it or to overcome it once it takes us. Jesus can do those things. He is master over death. He is victorious over death. Without Him, we are doomed to be death’s prisoner, but He came to set the captives free.
Task for Today: This would be a good day to celebrate life. Though your outward body is aging, your inward man is being renewed again and again. In the care of Jesus, it will never die. Celebrate your eternity in Jesus today.
