Verse of the day 09/22/14 – the high priest

      p1

Hebrews 4:15                                       David W. Aucoin                           
For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin.

Having a high priest that understands everything we experience is a total comfort. He went through all of the issues of life. He went through childhood, grew into a young man, and then he accepted the mission the father gave him.

He suffered for us and died for us. That is a really awesome point in time to never be taken lightly. It marked the opportunity for us as believers and worshipers to live in a freedom that the people during the days of Moses did not have. A life a grace we now live. No longer under the law.

When we were under the law we had to continually (continually) do something to get our sins forgiven. We had to confess our sins and the priest would enter the holy of holies and present a perfect sacrifice acceptable to God. Then we turned to the laws again only to fail again and again.

What a blessing it is to live for God and learn each day by our mistakes. As the scripture today tells us with understanding he lovingly forgives us.  Jesus said forgive them for they know not what they do.

Today I will reflect upon these scriptures:

Exodus 15:2

The Lord is my strength and my song, and he has become my salvation; this is my God, and I will praise him, my father’s God, and I will exalt him.

What a wonderful feeling I have as I type this response just to know that I am eternally secure and free from all the condemnation and whiles of Satin and his band of angels. They are defeated and Jesus stands in my defense. I can not fail. I can fall but fail I will not.

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.

Today I really really  realize just how powerful God is. He keeps me protected and I shall not fear as I go through this challenging life knowing that an ending with God for eternity will be my home.

Psalm 31:24

Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord.

So today I know that I am protected by the infinite God of the whole universe who knows each stars name. I am in total awe and at the same time I am comforted in knowing his love.

May I have an earnest prayer for my fellow brothers that are lost and on a path far from God. For I once was far from your Love O’lord and you saved me. I pray for their souls to turn to your Love of them.

Your only requirement is belief and now the offerings are not of bulls and goats of which can never be a final sacrifice. You allowed us the opportunity to serve you through belief, praise and worship as the only requirements for salvation.

I thank you for that today !

This song is an awesome song for today.. If you have not been listening to the Song for my day I would encourage you to listen to today’s song because this song is a perfect match for today’s scripture.

Jesus is now our precious lamb that God accepts.

Amen

Quote for my day:

There should be a parallel between our supplications and our thanksgivings. We ought not to leap in prayer, and limp in praise.

Charles Spurgeon
