Hebrews 7:23-25

23 Also there were many priests, because they were prevented by death from continuing. 24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Therefore He is also able to save to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.  Hebrews 7:23-25

Jesus sits at the right hand of the Father.  He lives forever more.  The priest under the Old Covenant had to replace when their time as priest came to an end.  Under the Old Covenant the priest the mediator between God and man.  But under the New Covenant Jesus is the mediator between us and our Father in Heaven.  The precious blood of Jesus enables us to draw near to the throne of grace with confidence and without fear.

It is by the grace and mercy of God that we are saved.  It is by God’s grace and His power that we are held close to the Lord.  We are not saved by our works and our right standing with God is not based upon our performance.  It is based upon our faith in Christ Jesus.  As we grow with Him we are transformed into His character and His nature.

May we fix our eyes on Jesus each day.  May we seek Him with our whole heart and remove from our lives anything that would hinder our walk with Him.  He is coming soon and He returns for a bride who is prepared and ready.  He returns for a bride that seeks Him with her whole heart.
