The Joy in Responsibility
(An In-Depth Study of Hebrews)
The Big Picture – The Priesthood (Verses 1-24)
The old Priesthood (in the order of Aaron) is inadequate.
Many temporary Priests
Came from a legal requirement
Under the Law – that cannot make anyone perfect
The new Priesthood (in the order of Melchizedek) is eternal.
One High Priest forever
Came from an indestructible life
Jesus, the guarantor of a better covenant
The Main Point (Verse 25)
Jesus is able to save forever…
…because he lives to make intercession for them (everyone who draws near to God through him)
The Priesthood answers the question: From what am I being saved?
Sin <Priesthood> Holy
The main point answers the question: What does my salvation look like?
Salvation is not static.
I believed and I was saved… and … Jesus is saving me today and forever.
What do I need? To continue to draw near to God through Jesus.
My life needs everything in it that cause affections toward Jesus.
