7:16 Jesus became a priest, not by meeting the physical requirement of belonging to the tribe of Levi, but by the power of a life that cannot be destroyed.
7:19 For the law never made anything perfect. But now we have confidence in a better hope, through which we draw near to God.
7:25 Therefore He is able, once and forever, to save those who come to God through Him. He lives forever to intercede with God on their behalf.
Lord, You know I am but a simple woman and no theologian, I pray for Your wisdom and direction for our prayer this morning. Help ALL of us to understand what You are saying this morning and adapt our understanding to YOUR truths, rather than changing Your truth to adapt to our opinion.
The law never made anything perfect, but Jesus, You do! Thank You! The meticulous laws and regulations could not perfect anyone - they still can't - Jesus, only You can do that. You are our King of Peace and Justice. You are our hope. You are our intercessor. You are the One drawing us closer to God. I ask we open our minds and soften our hearts to all that You can, and desire, to be to each of us. Lord, where there are tendencies to follow after laws and regulations, rather than Your Spirit within, please help us to see. Thank You for Your mercy and grace as You transform us each step of the way, on our journey with You. In Jesus Name, amen ❤
