Devotion – Hebrews 7

S – He doesn’t need to offer sacrifices every day, as high priests do—first for their own sins, then for those of the people. He did this once for all time when he offered himself. 28 For the law appoints as high priests men who are weak, but the promise of the oath, which came after the law, appoints a Son, who has been perfected forever. 

 Heb 7:27–28.

O – Great distinction about the law providing forgiveness of sins and implemented through the fraility of human, sinful priests.  Jesus, as God’s appointed high priest was sinless and defeated sin  and death once and for eternity.

A – I need to come to God with full confidence that He will forgive my sins.  I must deal with my sins first.  As a minister, I must do this first and then work on helping others with their relationship with God.  I like the importance of dealing with my own stuff before helping others.

R – Lord, help me to do this.
