*Hebrews 7 (Saturday)*
Hebrews revisits the matter of Abraham paying tithes to
Melchizedek, a man "Without father, without mother, without
genealogy, he has neither beginning of days nor end of life
but is like the son of God ...", adding that one only pays a
tithe to one who is greater.
The One "like Melchizedek" Who came, Jesus the Christ, was
not of the Aaronic line but was a high priest. The law was
set aside "... because it is weak and useless, for the law
made nothing perfect."
Jesus has the power from God to make one perfect, Jesus
never dies, therefore Jesus can save us completely whereas
the old priests provided temporary refuge and were
themselves subject to death.
"... the Word of solemn affirmation that came after the law
appoints a son made perfect forever."
[Note: The "solemn affirmation" was from God "You are a
priest forever ...".]
*Consider* the contrast between the law, which illustrates
sin and illuminates our need for Christ but cannot make us
perfect, therefore cannot save us, and the gift of Christ
which is the power to make perfect and therefore to save.
*Discuss* practical ways to illustrate the differences
between the purpose of the law and of grace.
*Reflect* upon the eternal essence of Jesus, what makes Him
the son of God, an eternal member of the triune Godhead.
*Share* an example of the confusion created when a pastor or
a teacher or another who claims Biblical authority or wisdom
who confuses the purpose of the law and grace. What was the
*Truth in Action*
Today I am committing to pray for someone whom I know who
is confused about law and grace. I will ask the Holy Spirit
to show me, or someone, the opportunity to share this
chapter of Hebrews with them. I ask for humility and
patience and agree to prayer fervently that they will see
and respond wisely to the light of this Word.
